What is this lawsuit about?
A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit (In re Intuit Data Litigation, Case No. 15-cv-1778-EJD (N.D. Cal.)) about taxpayers whose identities were used to file fraudulent federal tax returns by someone else using Intuit’s TurboTax service for tax years 2014, 2015, and 2016 (for which tax returns were filed in calendar years 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively). The lawsuit claims that Intuit failed to adequately prevent the filing of these fraudulent tax returns in their names. Intuit denies any wrongdoing and the Court has not ruled that Intuit did anything wrong or violated any law.
