Abstract: Let $ \mathcal{T}$ be the $ {C^*}$-algebra generated by the Toeplitz operators on $ {H^2}$ of the unit circle, and let $ C$ be the $ \mathcal{T}$-ideal generated by $ \{ {T_\varphi }{T_\psi } - {T_{\varphi \psi }}:\varphi ,\psi \in {L^\infty }\}$. It is well known that $ \mathcal{T} / C$ is naturally $ *$-isomorphic to $ {L^\infty }$. Several authors have obtained a similar result for other classes of Toeplitz operators. In the present paper a general theorem is proved which establishes the relevant isomorphism for a wide class of generalized Toeplitz operators.
