Disclosure regarding Third Party Contributors on the TurboTax Blog

Announcements

On October 5, 2009 the FTC announced that starting December 1, 2009 it will enforce new rules regarding the disclosure of any transaction of free goods, free services, or money between bloggers and companies. These new rules are aimed at protecting consumers, like you, from knowing whether you’re receiving an independent recommendation or insight from someone who might have a different experience from yourself.

We believe that having third party bloggers contribute on the TurboTax blog provides richer content and more diverse opinions.  In order to thank these contributors for their time and the energy they devote to the blog, we sometimes provide them with free goods, services, and compensation.

We encourage our third party bloggers to openly voice their opinions and we also ask that there’s full disclosure on all online channels regarding any relationship with TurboTax and Intuit.

Also, we’ll be updating the list below of all non-Intuit employees who contribute to the site and might receive free goods, services, or monetary compensation.

Third-Party Contributors to the Turbo Tax Blog:

Jim Wang

J. Money

Flexo

Elle_CM

DebtKid

PT Money
