H&R Block Helped Shape Obamacare, Now Set For Gigantic Payday

Get your billions back, America! (And give a bunch of it to H&R Block.)

Five years ago, a bevy of high-priced H&R Block lobbyists worked on the tax preparation company’s behalf to shape the Affordable Care Act.

And this April 15, those efforts are set to pay off in a big way for the company.

H&R Block is well positioned to earn more than $100 million in additional fees from low-income Obamacare enrollees as they face the daunting challenge to properly file this year’s complicated health-related tax forms.

Consumers are familiar with H&R Block’s massive “Get Your Billions Back” ad campaign that includes direct appeals to Obamacare recipients who will have to file health information on this year’s IRS tax forms.
