I agree, this is becoming a problem. When taxpayers use turbo tax then can enter whatever they want. We are counting on the IRS to catch the fraud and that is too difficult to ask. Changes might have to be made to the tax system as whole (very slim chance) or to online providers. Turbofraud is costing taxpayers money!!!
From reading an article, I can't tell what fault Turbotax had in this. Tax fraud isn't becoming a problem, it always has been a problem. You can do the same fraud with a paper return or any other tax program.
