Minn. says TurboTax problems could be fixed soon

Posted:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -

Minnesota revenue officials expect problems with TurboTax will be cleared up soon.

   Terri Steenblock, assistant revenue commissioner for individual income taxes, expected the troubles to be cleared up by the end of Monday.

   Some taxpayers will have to file amended returns. But Intuit, parent company of TurboTax, said it would pay for any additional tax preparation costs.

   Minnesota first became aware of problems with TurboTax and other Intuit products about two weeks ago when Intuit notified the department that if was holding back about 11,000 returns until the company could adapt the Minnesota tax-return software to recent federal tax law changes.

   The Star Tribune reports the state identified 13 issues with the various software products.

   A company spokeswoman says Intuit worked through the weekend to resolve the issues.
