It’s worth noting that last May, TurboTax faced checks being issued to approximately 4.4 million people following a settlement with parent company Intuit for allegedly steering low-income Americans away from free tax-filing services. The recent ruling from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) against TurboTax serves as a reminder of legal scrutiny in various industries.
