You confirm and acknowledge that Intuit will not be responsible for any fines or penalties that may be levied as a result of information provided to Intuit which may be inaccurate, incomplete or otherwise untimely. By using the SUT Services to prepare and submit your Electronic Filing, you consent to the disclosure to the applicable tax or revenue authority of all information pertaining to your use of the Electronic Filing.

Intuit will not be liable in any way if the SUT Services available to you cannot be performed completely or accurately because of anything not reasonably within our control, including problems with the Internet or inaccurate or incomplete information you provide to us. If any Intuit error occurs in performing the SUT Services available to you, our only responsibility will be to file the correct report and pay any resulting tax interest or penalty. In no event will we be liable for any indirect, special or consequential damages. If these remedies fail of their essential purpose, Intuit’s maximum liability will equal the fees you have paid to Intuit for the applicable Service subscription as otherwise described in this Agreement.
