Has anyone else experienced possible information leaks and an increase in phishing scams?

Hello,

 

To protect from phishing, I would recommend two-step authentication. Please see:

I would also advise changing your password, which can be done with the following steps:

 

  1. Sign in to your TurboTax account
  2. Select Intuit Account in the menu
  3. In the Manage your Account section, select Sign In & Security
  4. Select either User ID or Password to make changes
  5. Enter the new information
  6. Select Save after entering your new user ID or password

Best regards!

Was it about a duplicate 198 form?   Turbo Tax did send out an email about duplicate 1098 forms and you may need to amend.
