H&R Block Offers Tax Preparation Discount to Drivers Who Partner With Uber

Partnership Between H&R Block and Uber Benefits Partner Drivers at Tax Time

KANSAS CITY, MO - (Marketwired) - January 28, 2015 - H&R Block (NYSE: HRB), the world's largest consumer tax services provider, is offering drivers who partner with Uber, the global technology platform that connects riders with drivers, a discount on H&R Block tax preparation costs.

"With the rise of the sharing economy, a new type of freelancer and entrepreneur is becoming more common, including those that drive on the Uber platform. But in many ways, this partnership actually brings to mind H&R Block's days as a start-up on Main Street 60 years ago, helping small businesses with their tax and accounting needs," said Kip Knight, H&R Block president of U.S. retail operations. "We have the expertise and technology to give relevant, accurate tax support to every type of self-employed or small business filer."

H&R Block tax professionals at more than 10,000 locations nationwide can help the hundred of thousands of drivers in the U.S. claim all the tax benefits they are entitled to as self-employed taxpayers, while ensuring they meet all IRS requirements. Uber drivers will receive a $20 discount off of the fee to prepare their tax returns.

"Uber has grown significantly this past year, which means there are more driver partners in more cities across the country. Our relationship with H&R Block will give partners, many of whom are new to Uber and new to self-employed business requirements, discounted access to the tax expertise they need," said David Richter, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives.

Uber driver partners may schedule an appointment with H&R Block by calling 1-800-HRBLOCK or by visiting http://www.hrblock.com/tax-offices/.
