A taxpayer was denied relief from late filing penalties when his return, filed via TurboTax, was rejected for an erroneous identification number for a dependent in the case of Spottiswood v. United States, US District Court, ND California, Case No. 3:17-cv-00209. The taxpayer failed to notice an email from TurboTax reporting to him that the return had been rejected, as well as the fact that the $395,619 payment due had not been withdrawn from his bank account. It was not until 18 months later he discovered the rejected return.
