Welcome to the Information Website for the Walmart Sales Tax Refund Settlement.
UPDATE: Disbursement of payments has begun. A small percentage of Class Members who chose to receive their payment electronically (e.g., by Venmo or PayPal) have experienced delays or payment processing issues. The Settlement Administrator will be issuing checks to Class Members who have been unable to receive their payment electronically. These mailings will likely take several weeks to complete. Please contact Class Counsel if you have questions. Thank you.
Walmart and Sam’s Club customers were 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 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.
The Court has granted Final Approval of the settlement. Payments are in the process of being sent to members of the Settlement Class who filed timely and valid claims on July 19 and July 21, 2021.
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.
NOTE: This is just a summary. The Settlement Class members’ rights and options under the Settlement, and the deadlines to exercise them, are explained further in the Frequently Asked Questions page of this website.
