H&R Block, Inc. Company Profile
Only two things are certain in this life, and H&R Block has a leg up on one of them. The company is one of the largest tax return preparers in the US, where it boasts more than 10,000 company-owned and franchised retail locations. It also has almost 1,600 locations in Canada and Australia. It serves more than 24 million tax customers in all. The firm also provides retail banking through H&R Block Bank and publishes do-it-yourself tax-preparation software. (The company in 2014 agreed to sell H&R Block Bank to BofI Federal Bank and exit the banking business.) The move signified H&R Block's ongoing efforts to refocus on its core tax preparation services.
