    HRB the next WM

    Thanks for the hello. I think Bill may be too much enamoured with numbers crunching and not enough with human resources.

    To me, the abandonment by HRB of its famous trademark "TaxCut" in favor of "H&R Block at Home" was truly stupid, the sign of a deficient management, flailing around for a magic bullet and thinking that a name change would do the trick. Shades of New Coke!

    • Worked for HRB as part time tax preparer for three years. They hire anybody that can warm a seat to do tax returns. Very poor. Once a tax payer does their own taxes using software/web they will never go back to HRB. This business will not exist in 10 years.

      They're really not a software company but maybe they can make the transition. They'll have to play catch-up to other players in the tax software field.

      My local newspaper reports Oaklx up 2.9% ytd, yet Yahoo is reporting Oaklx down 4.12 % ytd. Anyone know the actual number? Or do I just need new glasses?
