Slow tax season leads to H&R Block 4Q profit dip
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — H&R Block Inc. says a weak tax season led to a 2 percent decline in fiscal fourth-quarter net income.
Uncertainty about its business and the economy kept the nation’s largest tax preparation company from issuing guidance for its new fiscal year.
Block posted net income of $690.8 million, or $2.10 per share. Revenue fell 5 percent to $2.34 billion.
Wall Street was expecting profit of $2.04 per share, on revenue of $2.34 billion.
