Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,Yes you are correct the entire amount would be taxable to you. TurboTax has a process they require that you follow.If you believe the situation was caused by a calculation error within the TurboTax software and you have been assessed penalties and interest which you have had to pay because of this, you may submit your claim for review using the form located on their Web site here.They also advise:Note: You need to respond to the taxing authority as soon as possible.

I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX TurboTax process is simply handled for you and all works well.

I suggest you contact them as soon as you can and submit your claim.
I do know they are very specific about that.
