Our H&R Block company is always moving forward.

In 1955, H&R Block was founded with the understanding that taxes are more than just numbers on a page — they have a real impact on people’s lives. This founding principle helps guide us today, as we continue to transform the industry.

Two brothers, one vision.

At a time when taxpayers were left to navigate the complexities of filing on their own, our founding brothers, Henry and Richard Bloch, offered tax prep guidance. This innovative service marked the beginning of the tax preparation industry, setting the foundation for our company values: putting people and their refunds first.

We didn’t just set the bar — we are the bar.

H&R Block invented the tax preparation category. We take this history seriously with the belief that everyone deserves tax help without stress or hassle — seriously.

Upfront, transparent pricing

We’re the only major national brand to offer upfront, transparent pricing. That means no more tax fee surprises with our No Surprise Guarantee.

Many ways to file

We’ve got more ways to get tax help than anyone else. From local office visits to online filing and virtual tax prep.

Genuine care and guidance

Our tax pros are the real deal. With 10 years’ experience on average, we’re here for you when you need us.

Unmatched tax expertise.

Since 1955, we have prepared more than 800 million tax returns worldwide. With an average of 10 years’ experience, our tax pros can handle the full spectrum of tax situations. And that’s not all. Our Tax Institute at H&R Block is among the first to analyze and understand the latest tax laws. Meaning no one is more qualified to get taxpayers every dollar and deduction they deserve.

Expanding our horizons.

To live the Block brand is to be determined, forward-thinking, and innovative. We’ve put in motion an ambitious five-year plan to grow our company and evolve our industry by focusing on three key areas.
