Hi I received this letter, and now I'm trying to amend my 2017 taxes and Intuit is requesting a fee of $49.00 is that the normal when it was their problem for not letting me enter the mortgage insurance in 2017? "Dear Valued Customer, We’re reaching out because you may qualify for a tax break if you paid mortgage insurance in 2017. On Feb. 9, 2018, the government passed the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, which includes a tax break called the mortgage insurance deduction. Both private mortgage insurance (PMI) and mortgage insurance premiums (MIP) are included in this deduction (but not homeowners or hazard insurance). We’re letting you know about the updated tax law now because you filed your return before the IRS issued guidance and final changes were in place. If this applies to you, we’ve got your back. Whenever you’re ready, we’ll be here to help you amend (change) your 2017 federal return to see if this tax break benefits you. There’s no rush to amend your return because you’ll be able to amend at any time (even after this year’s April filing deadline). "
