Are you a TurboTax user? If you utilized the software between 2016 and 2018, you might be due compensation
Thousands of Kentuckians who paid for Turbo Tax services between 2016 and 2018 could be receiving money as part of a nationwide settlement.
According to a release from the Kentucky Attorney General’s office, more than 54,000 Kentuckians could be in line for the compensation. The refunds come after the owner of Turbo Tax was taken to court for luring customers into paying for services advertised as free.
Those who were eligible for the IRS’s free file program in 2016, 2017, and 2018 but still paid for TurboTax services are expected to receive automatic restitution checks for $29 or $30 for each year they paid.
The Kentucky portion of the settlement is part of a larger $141 million multi-state settlement with the tax software maker.
