#15-08-OPE: Potential receipt of SNAP Applications Through Turbo Tax

The purpose of this policy bulletin is to inform all Non-Cash Assistance (NCA) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Center staff that SNAP applications may have been faxed to local SNAP Centers, based on the household’s zip code, through Intuit’s on-line tax preparation software, Turbo Tax. Effective January 30, 2015, Turbo Tax ceased generating new SNAP applications. While there may still be some SNAP applications in the queue, the influx of new applications being received through this method should decrease and completely stop in the near future. Until further notice, each Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Application/Recertification (LDSS-4826) form received through Turbo Tax must be processed as per the current SNAP application procedure.
