"customers knew what they were doing when they accepted the refunds" >>>>> MAKES PERFECT SENSE

Lawyers sure made a ton of money with this one.(but each of their clients only get 15 bucks)

When will the settlement be paid and how are they determining how many were filed? I've used H&R every year for the past 25 years (or more) and filed electronicly when it came available.

Anyone have a clue?

this only applies to those who accepted their refund immediately - instant cash -
Those who just filed electronically and received their refund normally are not in this category.

H&R Block is again accused of being a "predatory lender". As stated above, the attorneys will make a fortune, and the clients will get next to nothing (someone told me they were getting less than 10 bucks).

I'd say the attorneys are even more guilty of being 'predatory' than H&R Block.

I also filed one of the claims in Huntington. WV and
still have not received any information back on it yet. Does anyone know how to find out when and how much the amount of refund is going to be?

if you look at the end of page 7 and the top of page 8 of the final order on the WWW.RALSETTLEMENT.com it tells you that there were 680,750 members in the suit. there is $22,984,000 to split to everybody BEFORE attorneys fees. it tells you that everybody will get apprx $16 dollars each. if you call the 1-800 contact number it tells you that you will receive something towards the end of january.

My mother also lives in TX, and she got a check too for $103.00. She had lived in WI and filed her taxes in WI. I'm in WI, and have still not received one.
