The FTC has said that people aren’t able to use the free program.
Inuit is being deceptive by calling the software free.
The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is suing Inuit for their TurboTax software. The company is deceiving customers by calling their filing software free. Read more about it here.
About 66% of all tax filers couldn’t use the free TurboTax product in 2o2o. It isn’t available for anyone with a Form 1099 for people working in the gig economy or earning income by farm.
The FTC is trying to obtain a court order to stop Inuit from running “deceptive advertising.” TurboTax advertises free filing but then charges you when it is time to file.
