KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- With nearly 15 million electronically filed returns last year -- more than any other company -- H&R Block (NYSE: HRB) has long supported e-filing and helped our clients understand the benefits. We currently provide free e-filing to all of our online users and continue to work with the government to encourage taxpayers to electronically file.

We welcome the opportunity to partner with the Treasury and IRS to develop additional ways to increase e-filing and make it more accessible to U.S. taxpayers.
