I as a small retail shop would love it if HRB resells the software to us.
They may be thinking of that strategy as well as competing with Intuit.
The small tax shop will be dissappearing little by little. The kids today are computer savvy and will do their own taxes, but the complex returns will always come to us. I will be branching out to Insurance and Real Estate in the next few years to make-up for diminishing returns .
