Settlement Update: Posted January 5, 2017

The final calculations for the distribution have been completed and the process of mailing checks has begun. Depending on your final, calculated award amount, you may receive one check, two checks or a Substitute IRS Form W-9. If you receive a Substitute IRS Form W-9, you must complete the form and mail it back to the Settlement Administrator within 14 days of the date of the letter you receive or your check may automatically be subject to tax withholdings, as explained below.

See below for more details about the distribution.

Claimants who are scheduled to receive a single settlement check that is up to $599:

Settlement checks mailed on December 30, 2016.

Claimants who are scheduled to receive a total settlement payment of between $600-$1,199:

Payments were split equally into two payments. The first payment was mailed on December 30, 2016 and the second payment will be mailed on or about January 13, 2017.

Claimants who are scheduled to receive a settlement check that is more than $1,200:

You will be receiving a Substitute IRS Form W-9 in the mail in January 2017. This is to satisfy IRS tax reporting obligations related to the payment you will receive. You must complete the Substitute IRS Form W-9 and return it to the Claims Administrator at the address listed on the letter within 14 days of the date on the letter you receive.

Your check will be delayed if you do not timely return the completed Substitute IRS Form W-9.

The money you will receive is tax reportable income and the amount of your settlement check will be reported to the IRS.  Neither Counsel nor the Claims Administrator can offer tax advice. Please contact a professional tax advisor or other qualified financial counselor with any questions concerning taxes.

Failing to return this form on time may have several consequences, including the automatic withholding of up to 35% of your settlement award for state and federal taxes.  It also may make it more difficult for you to recover any overpayment of taxes from your settlement check.
