Public Policy Issues

To help Intuit achieve our mission of powering prosperity around the world and realize our strategy of being an AI-driven expert platform, Intuit regularly evaluates its priorities and the public policies most important to our ability to serve small businesses, self-employed, and consumers and to ensure business continuity. Because the political and regulatory environment are ever changing, we base our decisions for strategic advocacy on established principals grounded in our values and mission.

Here are some of the major policy areas where we help shape public policy:

Transparency

We comply with the spirit and letter of all Federal and State laws governing political contributions and their reporting and disclosure requirements. In the United States our PAC contributions are publicly disclosed to the Federal Election Commission and state contributions are publicly disclosed on applicable, corresponding State Web sites. We aggregate and publish below, semi-annually, contributions we make although it may not reflect when the campaign process the donation.

This includes all direct or in-kind payments in response to explicit solicitations for a political contribution, an electioneering communication, or an independent expenditure. Intuit will disclose these payments, regardless of whether the solicitations are from a political party, political action committee, or politically active tax-exempt organization, such as one organized under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 501(c) 4 or section 527, as defined by applicable laws. Any other payments Intuit may make to IRC 527 organizations are electronically reported on IRS Form 8872 by those organizations, and can be found on the IRS Web site. We comply with all Federal and State lobbying and reporting requirements and regulations, and our Federal reporting is publicly disclosed on the Lobbying Disclosure Act websites of the US Congress.

We pay dues to various trade associations that are organized under section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code. These organizations help Intuit to further our public policy goals and desired business outcomes, and we review these memberships annually. For such organizations to which our dues payments are $25,000 or greater, each year Intuit inquires and makes reasonable efforts to obtain information on what portions of our dues payments may be used for association lobbying expenditures or political contributions as defined by section 162(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code. The information these associations provide to us is published below annually.
