The settlement agreement covers users who used TurboTax in 2016, 2017 or 2018. If you are one of the affected users you will receive about $30 for each of those years in which your income was $34,000 or less and in which you started in the Free Edition and were upgraded to a paid version of the software.
"Covered Consumer" means any individual, or individuals if a joint return was filed, who in Tax Years 2016, 2017, or 2018 was (1) eligible to use an Intuit IRS Free File Product; (2) began his or her tax returns using a TurboTax Free Edition Product; (3) was informed that he or she was ineligible to use a TurboTax Free Edition Product; (4) subsequently paid to use a TurboTax Paid Product, and (5) had not used the Intuit IRS Free File Product in a previous tax year.
You do not have to “sign up” or get on a list. The payments will be sent out automatically to the affected users.
The Intuit Multi-State Settlement agreement with the attorneys general of the states is not a class action lawsuit. Are you talking about the Multi-State Settlement agreement or some other lawsuit?
Please see the settlement web site for all questions about settlement payments. Note the following statements from that web site.
"Consumers to Receive Payments Automatically, Without Filing a Claim"
"The settlement is being administered by a third-party administrator, please do not contact Intuit [TurboTax] with questions."
You should also look at the Common Questions on the settlement web site.
The checks are being sent by the settlement administrator, not by TurboTax.
If you have not received a payment, it's probably because you are not a Covered Consumer. But if you think you are a Covered Consumer, and you have not received a payment, you have to contact the settlement administrator as instructed on the settlement web site.
