A few weeks ago, I lamented the idea that the IRS was going to put the free filing in the hands of Intuit… and it’s getting worse as we speak.

Intuit, the biz behind America’s most popular tax-filing software, was sued this week for seemingly hiding a free version of its product from search engines.

The class-action lawsuit [PDF] from TurboTax users from across the United States was lodged in San Francisco, and joins one filed [PDF] last week by the Los Angeles City Attorney on behalf of the people of California, also against Intuit.
