Is the letter from the IRS--not the state of New York? The IRS has facilities in various parts of the United States, so if the letter is really from the Internal Revenue Service, it makes no difference that it was mailed from an office in New York.
TurboTax does not receive any information from the IRS or your state after your return was filed, so no one at TurboTax knows about a letter you received from the IRS or the state.

TurboTax has a special phone number for help with IRS/state tax letters, which will be easier than going through regular Customer Support. At the page below, click on the blue button that says "Get Help from TurboTax Support". Then it will ask you what tax year is your letter. Then it will ask you what the letter concerns. Then it will show you the phone number during posted business hours.
If you think the letter is a scam--and there are plenty of them out there, call the IRS to find out if they sent you a letter about 2013.
