Hot off the presses-- taxpayer blames TurboTax for years of incorrect returns and then uses the "Timothy Geithner" defense, as in "Treasury Secretary Timothy Geitner admitted screwing up his own returns on TurboTax and almost lost the nomination!"

Capital losses on Schedule C, bogus rental losses, etc...

Guess who won this one. [1]

Software is only as good as the person using it. Thanks for sharing.

Dave Fogel mentioned this too: Discussion: Tim Geithner Defense Doesn't Avoid Penalty

It's good to keep bringing these cases up.

Thanks Death-- I didn't see that thread. It was in the most recent issue of TaxPro Monthly, but Dave beat me to the punch.

See my other post on the Chat page. I had thought that preparers' had a higher standard for positions taken on a return than the taxpayer. Apparently, this is not true.
