Check In The Mail: Ohioans Cashing In on Turbo Tax Settlement Featured

Written by

Intuit, the company that makes the popular Turbo Tax software, will be sending out checks to Ohioans who were tricked into paying for free tax services.

The State of Ohio is one of a number of states that will split a $141 million dollar legal settlement, with $5 point three million dollars of that total earmarked for 174 thousand Ohioans who were mislead by the company.

Don't expect a whole lot of cash though; Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost says most people will be getting about $30 dollars.

Consumers eligible for settlement money are being contacted via email by the settlement fund administrator, Rust Consulting. All checks are expected to be mailed by the end of May. If you haven't received yours by mid June, you can visit the settlement site and ask for a payment to be reissued. To do that, you'll need the claimant ID number from the email that you received.

To be eligible for a refund; you would have had to have begun your tax return using a TurboTax Free Edition Product but then, have been informed that you were ineligible to use that product, so you had to use a paid version.

The settlement with Intuit, announced by Yost in May 2022, was joined by all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
