turbo tax is having software update issues with some states

Thought some of you could find this interesting.  Got it off the Minnesota DOR website today.

"The Minnesota Department of Revenue has been notified by the tax software company Turbo Tax (Intuit) that they are not processing some returns because they have not completed their software program updates. They anticipate that programming will be complete by February 26, 2013."


I've been doing business with TT for many years.  You'd think they could have come clean with this on their own weeks ago.  Pass it around folks.  Wow....I just don't know how this truly makes me feel right now.   Shame on you TT.

  • I live in NJ and I started my taxes in Jan 2013. TT has been having problems with my state as well. State return rejected every 3 days for a month. On Mar 13. 2013 when I went to the "help me fix error" in TT there was a message that an update, available on March 27 2013 is needed to correct line 48 of state return, which is the error on my state return causing the state return to be rejected. Went to TT on March 30, 2013 and resubmitted state return thinking the update is working. I got a rejected email again this morning. I go to the 'help me fix' and there is the news that an update will be available on March 27, 2013 to correct this error. What is wrong with TT this year?
  • filed State Return yesterday in AZ and was rejected. TT says everything is ok. just resubmitted. what do you do if TT keeps not working and the 14th comes around?
  • Same issue with Illinois state return - rejected time after time saying that the secondary tax payers (we are joint filing) e-signature is not valid despite putting in the correct details and confirming with IL Department of Revenue that the data is exactly what they have on file.  I have tried it with  prior AGI figures, driving licence numbers and the ILpin but it won't accept any of them and always comes back 12 hours later rejected - how can I get around this without having to paper file - there is no notice of an upgrade due for the IL return that I have seen.
  • I have the same issues for AZ even after federal accepted.
  • >>
  • Same my federal got accepted straight away - IL state has been rejected 5 times now - how do we make TT aware of this to get it sorted in time?
  • I'm having thisw problem with NM
  • Vermont. Wtf??
  • I am having the same issue with IL

    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.
