Please be advised that we have been made aware of a phishing campaign currently underway that is using emails that appear to be related to TurboTax. The email does not contain a link; however, the email has a .zip attachment that contains malware. Do not open the attached .zip file.

The emails are not from TurboTax or Intuit, and they are not targeted specifically at your financial institution employees or end users, or Intuit Financial Services. You may want to notify your employees or end users that the email is not from TurboTax and that they should avoid forwarding it or opening the attachment.

Your Intuit Financial Services products and services are not affected.
