Intuit Inc. is closing its support center in Arlington Heights and laying off 104 employees, according to documents recently filed with the state.
Intuit, based in California, makes financial and tax prep software such as TurboTax. Its Arlington Heights support center is at 75 W. Algonquin Road.
"It's never anything we like to see. We always work hard to attract new businesses and retain the ones we have," said Charles Witherington-Perkins, the director of planning and community development in Arlington Heights. "Sometimes that doesn't always work out to our favor. It's disappointing, and we'll work hard to try to refill the void that's been left.
"Obviously it has the most impact on these employees, so we certainly feel for them that they're losing their position."
