HR Block Needs Tax Assistance

Apparently H&R Block needs some remedial tax assistance of its own. They've had to restate earnings for the past couple of years because of some tax issues:
As part of its ongoing work to remediate control weaknesses in its corporate tax function, the company said that it will restate its results for fiscal years 2005 and 2004, as well as previously reported quarterly results for fiscal 2006. The restatement pertains principally to errors in determining the company’s state effective income tax rate, resulting in a cumulative understatement of its state income tax liability of approximately $32 million as of April 30, 2005. The company estimates that the restatement will result in a 7-cent decrease in earnings per share in fiscal 2005 and a 2-cent decrease in earnings per share in fiscal 2004.
Perhaps Turbo Tax may come to the rescue. I hear the corporate version is pretty good at making sure that you manage your tax liabilities well.

Anonymous emailer calls 'em Blockheads. I'll say.
