It's one of the more unforgiving seasons of the year, and I'm not talking about winter. I'm talking about tax season. I know, it's never a fun part of the year, but unfortunately it's a fact of life.

If you've already used a popular program to file your taxes, you might be in for an unpleasant surprise.

The state of Minnesota is no longer accepting electronically filed tax returns from Intuit's TurboTax software because of fraud. If you have used TurboTax to file your taxes, you and your sensitive financial data could be at risk.
