This tax season is one that won’t be soon forgotten. As I said at the outset: Tough times don’t last. Tough people do. You’ve shown courage, commitment and resilience to serve customers and get the job done. I could not be more proud.
Through it all, we endured together, admitted when we fell short, fixed things that weren’t right, and responded with uncompromised integrity in a way that reflects the essence that is Intuit.
Your commitment was on full display last week during the Lifeline events in Tucson, San Diego and Bangalore. As I worked alongside our hundreds of volunteers in Tucson, you could feel their passion for our customers and the pride in Intuit.
The results, which we released today, say it all. Customers stood by us. Our TurboTax Online units grew 13 percent over a year ago, and total federal units grew eight percent. Early results also indicate that we once again increased our market share.
Your spirit inspired me, and the entire leadership team. Your teamwork demonstrated what makes Intuit unique. Your toughness helped us deliver a successful season. Simply stated, you made the difference. Thanks to everyone for all you did, and let’s continue to show what we’re made of as we continue through the rest of the year.
