Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:INTU) has been contacting Alabama taxpayers who may have inadvertently underpaid or overpaid state income taxes. The outreach effort, being done in conjunction with the state's Department of Revenue, follows the discovery of errors in the company's TurboTax® Alabama state tax software. The errors, most of which are uncommon tax situations, have been fixed.

"Each year, Intuit helps millions of taxpayers and tax professionals successfully file complete and accurate tax returns. Any error is important to us and our customers can rest assured that we'll work diligently to resolve it," said Bob Meighan, CPA and Intuit vice president. "Intuit takes responsibility for the accuracy of our tax products. As part of our continuous quality assurance process, when we discover an error we take the necessary and appropriate steps to resolve it. We stand behind our Accuracy Guarantee and will reimburse TurboTax customers for penalties or interest."

Intuit is assisting these taxpayers to amend and resubmit their state returns so they can claim an additional refund or pay any balance that may be due.
