Intuit TurboTax Class Action Lawsuit Settlement

 

 

TurboTax class action settlementTurboTax class action settlementIntuit Inc. has reached a $6.55 million class action lawsuit settlement over claims it charged deceptive fees to TurboTax Online customers. If you used TurboTax Online and opted to have your TurboTax fees, including your tax preparation fees or e-filing fees, deducted from your tax return, you may be eligible to claim a cash award from the proposed class action settlement.

The TurboTax settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit (Smith v. Intuit Inc.) filed in February that claims Intuit violated California and federal consumer protection laws in connection with TurboTax.com’s Refund Processing Service. The service, sometimes referred to as a Refund Processing Option or Refund Transfer, allows TurboTax customers to choose to pay their TurboTax fees by deducting the amount owed from their tax refunds for a fee (typically $29.95).


The class action lawsuit alleges, among other things, that Intuit failed to properly disclose the fee for the Refund Processing Service as a finance charge, and failed to properly disclose the Annual Percentage Rate (“APR”) of what plaintiffs allege is a loan.  

Intuit denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to refund consumers through a class action lawsuit settlement fund to resolve the litigation.

Class Members of the TurboTax class action settlement include all Intuit customers in the U.S. who used Intuit’s TurboTax Online and utilized the Refund Processing Service from and including January 12, 2008 through May 28, 2013.

The amount of money you can claim from the TurboTax class action settlement will be based on the number of times you purchased the Refund Processing Service during the Class Period divided by the total number of times that all Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form purchased the service. It is anticipated, on average, that Class Members who submit Claim Forms will receive more than $10. Actual payment could be more or less, depending on how many people file valid claims.

The only way to receive a cash award from the TurboTax settlement is to submit a valid Claim Form either online at www.TurboTaxClassAction.com or mailed to the Settlement Administrator so that it is postmarked or received on or before October 28, 2013.

Claim Forms and more information on your rights in the TurboTax Class Action Lawsuit Settlement can be found at www.TurboTaxClassAction.com.

The case is Smith, et al. v. Intuit Inc., Case No. 12-cv-00222, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California
