WHATEVER THE ISSUES ARE WITH TURBO TAX, THERE’S NO DISPUTING THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHARES THE BLAME FOR TAX REFUND THEFT
The makers of TurboTax brought their recent spate of bad publicity on themselves. When you are selling a product that people are relying on for something as sensitive as filing their tax return, you probably better not do anything that might in any way undermine their trust.
As I said the other day, however, it’s equally obvious that the government is unable to stop people from scamming it by fraudulently claiming tax refunds.
Is it Congress’ fault, because they have failed to address the problem? Or is it the IRS’ fault, because they apparently can’t even shut down a crook who uses the same address on 4,864 individual tax returns?
