From our news partner, WSAW in Wausau:

If you used TurboTax online between January 12, 2008 and May 28, 2013 and elected to have the TurboTax fees taken out of your tax return you may be eligible to share in a $6.55 million class action settlement.

According to ConsumerAffairs.com, the case began when a couple from Arkansa complained about the fees charged by Intuit, which publishes TurboTax. The couple said they used TurboTax in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Each time they deferred paying the $86.90 fee for using TurboTax, opting to have it deducted from their tax refund. Intuit did so but added a $29.95 "refund processing option" charge, more than 34 percent of the original fee. The couple got their refund in two weeks.

Claims must be submitted by October 28, 2013.
