How we became industry experts

In the late 1940s, Henry and Richard Bloch founded the United Business Company, specializing in income tax return preparation for small businesses in Kansas City, Missouri. In addition, they offered individual income tax services to the executives of their client companies. As word spread, business grew.

With the brothers recognizing their tax preparation services as a sound business venture, they rebranded themselves as H&R Block Inc. in 1955, with Henry as president and chief executive officer and Richard as chairman of the board.
