H&R Block was founded in the year 1955. The company has been operational for 64 years now. The founders of the company were Richard Bloch and Leon Bloch, whereas Richard Bloch joined the company later on. The company was started with a capital amount of just $5,000. The founders of the company opened a small bookkeeping shop in the city of Kansas, Missouri. After operating for a few months, since the business was not doing very well, Leon Bloch left the company and therefore Henry Bloch was the only one running the store. He then hired his brother, Richard Bloch for doing tax returns. The name of the company was changed to United Business Company, and it provided tax preparation services as well, besides bookkeeping too.
In the year 1955, the company had run an advertisement for $5 tax services, and the next day the office was full of clients, and therefore the company was born. The company also started franchising in New York City as well, in the year 1956. In the year 1962, the company had become a limited public company. Then in the year 1980, the company had taken over Compuserve online service and was handling more than 10 million tax returns. The company also opened its offices in Australia and Canada as well. The company also introduced electronic filling as well. During the 1990s, the company started giving mortgage loans too. The headquarters of the company is based in One H&R Block Way. The name of the place is Kansas City, while the state name is Missouri, USA. The pin code of the area is 64105.
