The Iowa Attorney General’s office has announced settlements in two consumer cases. The A-G’s office says a settlement with drugmaker Bristol-Myers Squibb over the chemotherapy drug Taxol could result in refund checks from under one hundred dollars up to 15-hundred. Several states sued saying the company illegally kept lower-priced generic alternatives to Taxol off the market. The A-G’s office is in the process of setting up an 800 number and website for consumers to file for a refund. You can check for updates on the rebates at the Attorney General’s website at: ww.IowaAttorneyGeneral.org. The other settlement involves the tax preparation company H&R Block. The company has agreed to pay back 22 dollars to customers who used H&R Block and received the company’s “Peace of Mind” guarantee. The guarantee said the company would pay up to five-thousand dollars of additional taxes owed if there was an error in preparing the returns. The A-G says it’s believed customers didn’t know they were being charged the extra 22 dollars for the service, and H&R Block has agreed to the refunds.
