Case Name

n re: Intuit Data Litigation,
Case No. 15-cv-1778-EJD
District Court for the Northern District of California

Case Summary

During tax years 2014, 2015, and 2016 (for which tax returns were filed in calendar years 2015, 2016, and 2017, respectively), some taxpayers’ identities were used by someone else to file fraudulent federal tax returns using the TurboTax service. This lawsuit claimed that Intuit (the “defendant” in this lawsuit and the operator of TurboTax) failed to adequately prevent the filing of these fraudulent tax returns. “Plaintiffs” in this lawsuit are six of the taxpayers whose identities were used by someone else to file fraudulent federal tax returns using TurboTax. Intuit denies any wrongdoing, and the Court has not ruled that Intuit did anything wrong or violated any law. The Notice is not intended to be an expression of any opinion by the Court with respect to the truth of the allegations in this action or the merits of the claims or defenses asserted.

    I had to go through ID verification does that count?
    Not sure if Id was used

    ADMIN – Hi Anette,

    At the core the question that you need to ask yourself to see if you are a class member is simple: Did someone file a fake tax return in my name? If the answer is yes go ahead and file a claim.

    I suspect my name is on the list but do NOT want a Credit Monitoring Service. That is just another con. Is there no other punishment for this company?

    ADMIN – Hi Elizabeth,

    You would totally know if you were a member of the class since someone else would have filed your documents and received your refund.

  7. Sheena says:

    I’m not sure if mine was used or not. If you could verify, I would be happy. Thank you in advance. Sheena

    ADMIN – Hi Sheena,

    You would totally know since you would have not received your tax refund.

  8. David S Nelson says:

    People, just because you used it doesn’t mean the filed a return. Use some common sense and think!!

  9. Kay Whitfield says:

    I’ve been using this Tax program for the last 5 years.

    How do you find out if you were a victim of this ?

  11. Jackie Brooks says:

    Do you have to have been notified by the IRS to qualify? I used this service for 2014, 2015 and 2016. They failed to file my SC state tax extension and I was fined. It had paid extra for the protection. I have not been made aware of anything else.

    ADMIN – Hi Jackie,

    This is about identity theft. Your particular circumstances don’t appear to be part of the settlement.

  12. Lori Weese says:

    I had my taxes stolen in 2015

    ADMIN – Hi Lori,

    If you are a member of the class consider filing a claim.
