Fraudsters Stealing Some TurboTax Refunds After Customers Filed

Another reason to use a tax professional and not boxed software:

In a tax season plagued with identify theft and tax fraud, a new method of online criminal activity has been identified, according to Intuit’s statements to The Washington Post.

Typically, fraudsters file a tax return in their victims’ names to collect the refund. In February, a rash of taxpayers reported logging into TurboTax to discover their state return already processed, leading Intuit to temporarily halt TurboTax e-filing. Earlier this month, Intuit CEO Brad Smith joined other tax software leaders in a sit-down with the Internal Revenue Service to address the growing problem.

In this rarer form of theft, tax refunds are stolen after the return is filed by the taxpayer and accepted by the IRS, with fraudsters then changing the bank account information to divert those funds.

According to Intuit, between 24 and 40 taxpayers have been affected and about 24 of them used TurboTax. All of those customers had elected to have their filing fees taken from their refunds in a refund transfer.

After filing fees are withdrawn, refunds are transmitted to taxpayers with a deposit by Tax Products Group, owned Green Dot Corporation, a bank that works with tax-preparation firms. In these newly reported instances, taxpayers’ personal information is obtained so the refunds can be sent to another bank account.

This season’s fraudulent activity was not limited to taxpayers using TurboTax, and Intuit has since beefed up the product’s security. Intuit offered to front tax refunds for customers affected by the latest incident, Intuit spokesperson Julie Miller told The Washington Post. In a company statement, Tax Products Group also said it has improved security measures.

Asked for further comment, Miller said Intuit had no statement beyond what she told The Washington Post.

Five Tips You Should Know about Employee Business Expenses

If you paid for work-related expenses out of your own pocket, you may be able to deduct those costs. In most cases, you claim allowable expenses on Schedule A, Itemized Deductions. Here are six tax tips that you should know about this deduction.
1. Ordinary and Necessary. You can only deduct unreimbursed expenses that are ordinary and necessary to your work as an employee. An ordinary expense is one that is common and accepted in your industry. A necessary expense is one that is appropriate and helpful to your business.
2. Expense Examples. Some costs that you may be able to deduct include:
• Required work clothes or uniforms that are not appropriate for everyday use.
• Supplies and tools you use on the job.
• Business use of your car.
• Business meals and entertainment.
• Business travel away from home.
• Business use of your home.
• Work-related education.
This list is not all-inclusive. Special rules apply if your employer reimbursed you for your expenses. To learn more, check out Publication 529, Miscellaneous Deductions. You should also refer to Publication 463, Travel, Entertainment, Gift, and Car Expenses.
3. Forms to Use. In most cases you report your expenses on Form 2106 or Form 2106-EZ. After you figure your allowable expenses, you then list the total on Schedule A as a miscellaneous deduction. You can deduct the amount that is more than two percent of your adjusted gross income.
4. Educator Expenses. If you are a K through 12 teacher or educator, you may be able to deduct up to $250 of certain expenses you paid for in 2014. These may include books, supplies, equipment, and other materials used in the classroom. You claim this deduction as an adjustment on your tax return, rather than as an itemized deduction. This deduction had expired at the end of 2013. A recent tax law extended it for one year, through Dec. 31, 2014. For more on this topic see Publication 529.
5. Keep Records. You must keep records to prove the expenses you deduct. For what records to keep, see Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax.
