Using this study, a quick diagnosis of Congress, with a heavy dose of medication could turn the tide for the American people and the U.S. economy.

Goal setting 2013: No exercise involved

January 22, 2013

Happy New Year everyone! Since it’s January, this is the time that I typically start talking about setting goals for the year: all the things you want to do, be, have in 2013.

H&R Block to spend tax season at Walmart

January 22, 2013

Spring is one of the most anticipated seasons out of the year.
Flowers begin to bloom, trees start to turn green again, and kids relish the week of Spring Break activities away from school.
One of the only negatives during the Spring season is that mid-April day when income taxes come due.
April 15 marks the end of the road for procrastinating taxpayers, but H&R Block wants to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to get those i’s dotted and t’s crossed before then.
