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.
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.
Since 1955, we have prepared more than 800 million tax returns worldwide. With an average of 10 years of 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.
