Welcome to the Information Website for the Walmart Sales Tax Refund Settlement.

Walmart and Sam’s Club customers may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement if they returned a purchase and didn’t get a full refund.

This website provides important information about a proposed settlement in a class action lawsuit against Walmart. The lawsuit claims that Walmart violated the law by incorrectly calculating and refunding the sales taxes it owed to customers who returned items purchased in store or online from Walmart or Sam’s Club after July 17, 2015. Although the court presiding over the case has not decided who is right or wrong, the parties have reached a compromise to end the lawsuit and provide compensation to those who may have been affected.

Who’s In The Settlement?

The Settlement Class: All those individuals who, during the period July 17, 2015, through November 25, 2020, returned an item purchased from a Walmart store, Sam’s Club store, or online from Walmart.com or Samsclub.com for pickup or delivery within the United States, and to whom Walmart or Sam’s Club gave a refund or credit, but the amount of sales tax refunded or credited was less than the full amount of sales tax paid at the time the item was purchased.

Please read through this website carefully. It summarizes the rights and options under the Settlement. You can access and read the full Settlement Agreement here.
