After reports of suspicious activity in at least 19 states, TurboTax has temporarily turned off service in all states, Bloomberg BNA State Tax Law Editor Radha Mohan and Bloomberg BNA correspondents Tripp Baltz, Michael Bologna, Martha Kessler, Nora Macaluso, Chris Marr, and Mark Wolski write in this week’s issue of the Weekly State Tax Report.
With filing deadlines fast approaching and concerned taxpayers clamoring for guidance, several states issued press releases and statements, notifying taxpayers how to proceed and protect their identity following this massive breach of security, they write.
For in-depth coverage of the states that have issued guidance on the breach, check out the article, which can be read in its entirety here.
