Processing Turbo Tax (Intuit) Returns

You may have read media reports over the weekend that Intuit, maker of TurboTax software, briefly halted the electronic filing of all state returns after 19 states noticed attempts by identity thieves to illegally obtain the refunds of legitimate taxpayers. Some states temporarily suspended the issuance of refunds to ensure they are distributed to the correct recipients.

So far, New Jersey is not one of the states identified in the Intuit situation. However, the Division of Taxation constantly monitors identity theft attacks, and has noticed an increase in fraudulent attempts during the past year. Prior to the Intuit announcement last week, the Division implemented new steps to help protect the identity of New Jersey taxpayers.

For the reasons mentioned above, it may take longer to process certain returns this season, and that means there could be a corresponding delay in issuing some refunds. The security of taxpayer information is paramount to the Division, and we ask for your patience as we process your returns in the months ahead.
