A class action lawsuit was filed against the financial firm for allegedly charging unnecessary fees for electronically filing clients' tax returns. Customers filed the lawsuit after being charged $10 to $30 for the electronic filing fee which they claimed was a deceptive practice. The class alleged the acts and omissions of H&R Block constituted breach of contract, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, and violated the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Act. Madison County Circuit Judge Don Weber has dismissed the class action lawsuit noting the fees were disclosed and were not clearly unreasonable and therefore there was no claim of deception or unfairness in the transaction.
