USAA Florida Auto Sales Tax Settlement

Bastian et al. v USAA et al.
USDC-Middle District of FL, Jacksonville Division Case No: 3:13-cv-1454-J-32MCR

Welcome to the USAA Florida Auto Sales Tax Settlement Website

A class action settlement involving USAA automobile insurance may provide payments to those who qualify.

If you are a Class Member, your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act.

USAA policyholders who suffered a total loss during the period October 17, 2008 through October 15, 2016 may be eligible for a payment if you qualify and timely submit a valid Claim Form or Electronic Claim Form. If you received a notice, USAA’s records show that you may have been insured by USAA and had at least one first-party total loss auto insurance claim during the applicable period October 17, 2008 through October 15, 2016, and you may not have received the full amount of sales tax due under the terms of this settlement. If you are eligible for payment as explained herein, the settlement will provide payment to you of the amount of sales tax that would be due upon purchase of a comparable vehicle minus the amount paid to you for sales tax (if any) by USAA. Florida sales tax during the relevant time period has been between 6-7.5% of the actual cash value of the vehicle.

This website provides information about a proposed settlement in a class action lawsuit concerning whether USAA insurance companies United Services Automobile Association, USAA Casualty Insurance Company, Garrison Property and Casualty Insurance Company and USAA General Indemnity Company (collectively, “USAA”) have properly included sales tax when paying claims for Total Losses under Automobile Insurance Policies in the State of Florida. USAA denies any wrongdoing.

The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve this settlement. Payments will be made if the Court approves the settlement and after any appeals are resolved. Please be patient.
