Many of us do so little through the mail these days that there’s rarely anything that merits our attention. If you used TurboTax to prepare your tax return for 2016, 2017 or 2018, you may want to keep an eye out for a check.
During those years, the maker of TurboTax participated in the IRS Free File program. According to a complaint filed by attorneys general in a number of states, the company took steps to make it difficult for its customers to learn they could use its services without charge. Without admitting wrongdoing, the company agreed to send checks to eligible customers. We recently learned that these checks are being sent throughout the month of May. There is no need to apply. If you’re eligible, a check will be sent to the address on your tax return.
