Intuit tax company committed fraud. According to the New York Attorney General's Office, nearly four million people will receive a check from Intuit for a tax service they used to file taxes online this least year, thinking they were getting a "Free Version" of the software, but then were not able to actually get a Free Version, duped into paying for software, as the advertising was false to begin with. Ot comes after an investigation found that the company misled low income Americans into paying to file their annual taxes. Under the agreement, Intuit admitted no wrongdoing, the company said. Free services were available, but kept hidden from the users after the advertising said they could use it for free. Americans earning a certain threshold who sued the company's paid software to file IRS taxes between 2016 and 2019 are now eligible to receive $30 for each year that they filed with the company, according to a settlement announced on the subject. Intuit tax company committed fraud.
The money will be paid to those who could have filed through the IRS free file no-fee program, but were instead steered towards the fee charging program at Intuit. More than 4.4 million people earning less than $34,000 mistakenly used the paid program, which was promoted through Turbo Tax's "free, free, free, ad campaign, according to New York Attorney General Leticia James, who led the lawsuit. "Intuit cheated millions of low income Americans out of free IRS tax filing services they were entitled to", James said in a statement. It did not state if any fines were imposed on Intuit. The practices were first revealed in a ProPublica investigation in 2019, which found evidence that company executives knew they were deceiving customers.
