Rhode Island Tax Settlement
- A recent class action law suit alleges that Dell illegitimately collected sales tax for Rhode Island residents on certain purchases when no sales tax should have been taken
- Any resident who bought a computer and an Optional Service Contract for it from Dell and who lives in the State of Rhode Island is eligible to file a claim in this class suit
- The court appointed the law firms of Ellis & Rapacki LLP in Boston, Massachusetts (people filing a claim do not need their own representation)
As part of a new class action law suit, residents of Rhode Island who purchased a Dell computer Optional Service Contract at any time from May 16, 1993 through December 31, 2011, may be eligible to receive a refund. The deadline to file a claim in the class action suit against Dell is November 9, 2016, and the final fairness hearing will be around the date of December 9, 2016. To be eligible to receive a payment from the Dell Rhode Island settlement, residents must submit a valid claim form. Any resident who has changed their name since they made their Dell purchase will need to contact Dell to have their settlement check issued in their new name and their new information.
How much will people who file a claim in the Rhode Island Dell class action lawsuit receive?
For any resident that files a valid claim in the Dell class action suit, Dell will compile a list of people who paid sales tax from the Rhode Island Department of revenue, and compare that information against Dell’s records to see how much sales tax reimbursement each resident is owed.
