TurboTax Settlement Checks from Intuit are Starting to Hit Mailboxes

The $141 million settlement stems from allegations that Intuit charged people for services that should have been free.

Keep an eye out for a letter from “Intuit Multistate Settlement Administrator”—it’s likely a settlement check.

Eligible recipients will start receiving checks this month as part of a 2022 $141 million settlement stemming from allegations Intuit, maker of popular tax-filing software TurboTax, charged people for services that should have been free.

More than 4.4 million taxpayers are eligible under the terms of the settlement by signed attorneys general of all 50 states.

To be eligible, consumers must have used TurboTax’s Free Edition for tax years 2016, 2017 and 2018 and were told they had to pay to file even though they were eligible to do so for free through the IRS Free File program offered by TurboTax.

The amount each consumer receives will be based on the number of tax years for which they qualify. Most consumers are expected to receive between $29 and $30. Individuals who filed for three consecutive years could get up to $85.

Checks will continue to be mailed through the end of May. Because of mail time, claim administrators said it may take until early June for some to receive their payments.
