Turbotax Download from Amazon is CORRUPTED

The digital signature on the file always shows "This digital signature is not valid." This means that the file has been changed since it was signed. This is evidence of either tampering or corruption, and I do not trust the software. I have contacted Amazon, but they say that since the software resides on Intuit's servers, the problem arises with them. Of course, they may have introduced the corruption in the process.

I have tried 4 downloads and they all have the same problem.

    I have contacted Intuit/TTax support, and they provided me with a download that was not corrupt.

    Although that solved my concerns personally, god knows how many other people downloaded and installed the corrupt version.

    Initially neither Amazon nor TurboTax seemed to want to act to remove and replace the corrupted file, and since both could potentially be held responsible for distributing a corrupt file... I was concerned and contacted Amazon again. I got the feeling that they would look further into the matter this time.

    Of course, the corruption may be simply an insignificant change in a part of the file that is not really used or it could be as bad as having been infected with some sort of malware which could send your personal information to someone else out on the internet.

     I'm sure TTax people are pretty busy right now, and after all, I paid Amazon for the software. They probably aren't nearly as swamped as the TTax guys, so I hope it gets sorted.

      I cannot speak for Amazon, but you can use the TurboTax Online edition OR purchase TurboTax for download directly from Intuit: http://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/

        People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
