Time period: May 18, 1994 - June 30, 2006 (for everyone except governments)
The software must have been purchased to use in Iowa. Consumers and small businesses will be paid in cash and can apply online for up to $100.00 in refunds with no proof of purchase - www.iowamicrosoftcase.com/.
Consumers and small businesses can seek $200.00 by mail without proof of purchase. Forms are available online.
Of course, if you have more than $200.00 in claims you can make those claims by mail with proper proof of purchase for the amount over $200.00.
We want every single consumer entitled to a refund to get one, but we do not want fraudulent claims. You have to swear under penalty of perjury that you made the purchases you claim.
Governments and companies that purchase under a volume license will get the same amounts in vouchers and must apply by mail. The time period for government purchasers is July 1, 2002 to June 30, 2006. A government or company that does not have easily accessible records can check the box on the claim form and the claims administrator will look at the Microsoft database and tell you what you purchased based on the Microsoft records.
CLAIMS MUST BE FILED ONLINE OR POSTMARKED BY DECEMBER 14, 2007.
We have to wait until final court approval and appeal time to distribute the money so don't expect your refund until at least December of 2007.
