TurbotTax Software Issues?

I was at work today a local warehouse shopping club, and these ladies told our refund counter that they heard something on the news about TurboTax filing bad calculations or incorrect tax returns via the software.

I am sure this wasn't true, because that would be a major issue. Has anyone heard about this?

I did a search and did not find anything on the Intuit website or via a basic search. Just thought I would ask here first.

The only issue I am aware of is the AMT calculation. If you didn't get the update that came out around Jan 15, it treats dividends wrong while seeing if you owe AMT. The error is in the direction of increasing amount owed, you might show as owing when you don't or owing more.

The update fixed the issue.

There may be others that didn't affect me. The key is to alwasy download the updates.
