TurboTax Maker Intuit Bringing 200-500 Jobs to West Virginia

Mike Mozart

The makers of TurboTax and QuickBooks are bringing 200 to 500 jobs to West Virginia.

News outlets report Intuit Inc. has announced it's building a "prosperity hub" in Bluefield. The Mountain View, California-based information technology company produces the consumer tax preparation application, the accounting program and other products.

Brad Smith, executive chairman of Intuit's board of directors, is a West Virginia native. He and other company officials said Friday that the hub will have a customer success center for product support and an innovation lab to help entrepreneurs and small businesses with financial literacy and other skills.

The company considered 935 communities that have struggled economically and Bluefield fit after evaluating its government, community relations and broadband access.

Bluefield Mayor Ron Martin says a downtown building for the hub hasn't been finalized yet.
