Hey there, TurboTax users! Have you heard the news? Thousands of you could be receiving checks in the mail from a massive $141 million settlement, and we’re here to spill the tea! ☕️
So, what’s the deal? Well, TurboTax’s parent company, Intuit, has agreed to a mind-blowing $141 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit. The lawsuit claimed that TurboTax didn’t make it clear enough that people could file their taxes for free with the IRS Free File Program. Yikes!
But there’s more! The settlement also alleges that TurboTax actively hid the free option from search engines like Google. So sneaky, right?
Now for the exciting part: If you’re one of the millions of eligible TurboTax customers, you could be getting a check in the mail! The average payout per person is estimated to be around $36, but it could be more if you paid for TurboTax services multiple times during the claim period.
You might be wondering, “Am I eligible for a piece of this cash pie?” Well, if you used TurboTax between January 12, 2012, and April 26, 2021, and you were eligible to use the IRS Free File Program at that time, you just might be!
Keep an eye on your mailbox, TurboTax users, because these checks are expected to be sent out in late May or early June. So, get ready to treat yourself to something special when that check arrives!
But don’t forget, this settlement isn’t just about the money. Intuit has also promised to make changes to TurboTax’s website and marketing to help customers find the free filing option more easily in the future. Let’s hope they keep their word!
