H&R Block is one of the world’s largest tax services providers. Founded in 1955 by brothers Henry W. Bloch and Richard A. Bloch, the company has prepared more than 600 million tax returns worldwide and boasts annual revenues above US$ 2.5 billion.
H&R Block is a pioneer in the tax preparation service in the US. They carved a niche by helping taxpayers who don’t like to prepare their own tax returns, or who just don’t know how. That market has only grown larger as tax codes have become more complex.
Also active in Canada, Australia, and India, H&R Block prepares one in six US federal tax returns. Today, operating from more than 13,000 storefronts and also online, H&R Block helps customers get more than US$50 billion in refunds, credits, and other benefits each year. H&R Block’s operations in Brazil began in 2011 with the formation of a joint venture with Semco.
