Will you all be be depositing funds to customers as ordered by a federal judge?

Under the agreement, Intuit will provide restitution to taxpayers that were charged for filing their taxes while using the commercial TurboTax Free Edition for tax years 2016 through 2018 even though those taxpayers were eligible for the free version of TurboTax offered as part of the IRS Free File program, according to AP.


Consumers eligible for restitution will be automatically notified by the company, and will receive a direct payment of approximately $30 for each year. so about $90 max


You will get a payment only if you are a Covered Consumer as defined in the settlement agreement.

Here is the definition of "Covered Consumer."

"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.

I'm not aware of any federal court order regarding payments to TurboTax customers, but if there is one, I'm sure Intuit will comply with the court order.

The agreement that Critter-3 described is an agreement between Intuit and the attorneys general of the states. There is no federal judge involved in that agreement. It is not a court order. And it's at the state level, not federal.
