The last 36 hours have been insane. Not only did 80 million Anthem customers find out their personal identification information was stolen, but then we found out Turbo Tax has stopped accepting e-filings due to rampant fraudulent filings. It’s a lot of pretty terrifying information to process at once. There is a clear path to take for Anthem customers, but the Turbo Tax thing is a little more complex. Yesterday I went on The Willis Report on Fox Business to further explain what’s going on with Turbo Tax. I also give the best options for how to move forward into tax season. Yesterday evening Turbo Tax announced they are again accepting e-filings, but the action plan you need to take hasn’t changed.
