Happy Tax CEO Issues Public Letter to H&R Block


In response to a collapsing share price, millions of lost customers, and rumors of the company’s sale, today Mario Costanz released a letter to the Board of Directors of H&R Block, Inc. (NYSE: HRB)

MIAMI BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–August 29, 2016–

The founder and CEO of Happy Tax, the innovative franchisor that is re-inventing the industry for tax filers and tax preparation professionals alike, believes that H&R Block, currently the largest retail tax preparation company in the US, has lost its way as a company and should get back to its entrepreneurial roots. With renewed management focus, Mario Costanz believes H&R Block still has time to significantly improve financial performance, franchisee morale, product quality, and consumer satisfaction.

“Injecting new management energy and new ideas makes the most sense for H&R Block at the current time,” suggests Mr. Costanz. “Since their stock is down 30 percent year-to-date and rumors are already starting to swirl that the company is preparing to sell itself, H&R Block should explore all options, including selling the company to a private equity firm that could turn around this sinking ship.”

Adds Mr. Costanz, “The tax preparation business has changed significantly since 1955 when H&R Block founders Henry and Richard Bloch invented the industry. Consumers and small businesses now have numerous tax preparation options. The traditional storefront model embraced by H&R Block is expensive and broken, and recently the company has severely underperformed Intuit (NASDAQ: INTU) and even independent providers.”

With an industry leading executive team and a disruptive business model loved by consumers and franchisees alike, Happy Tax is well positioned to offer this guidance to a company that seems to have lost its way. A copy of Mr Costanz’s letter of recommendations to H&R Block is below.

Happy Tax’s model allows for consumers and small business owners to access a network of professional CPAs by leveraging the power of superior technology in a more convenient and efficient way. Happy Tax helps its franchisees meet the needs of today’s increasingly tough regulatory requirements without the burden of preparing taxes themselves, hiring costly staff, or signing risky leases. And their customers do not have to wait in a tax office for the better part of an entire day to get their taxes done.

Now shaking up the $19 billion tax preparation industry, Happy Tax’s disruptive model was born out of frustration with unreliable, under-qualified tax preparers with no licensing or certification and as little as five days of tax training. Happy Tax is designed to bridge the gap between the high quality, pampering, and convenient customer service that consumers want and accurate, reliable, and professional tax returns prepared by CPAs with a minimum of five years of training and experience. Happy Tax offers franchises to those wanting to earn additional income and build their own business. Utilizing its patent-pending technology and processes, Happy Tax franchisees are able to operate with low overhead and increased flexibility.

Windows 10 included password manager with huge security hole

There's a good reason why security analysts get nervous about bundled third-party software: it can introduce vulnerabilities that the companies can't control. And Microsoft, unfortunately, has learned that the hard way. Google researcher Tavis Ormandy discovered that a Windows 10 image came bundled with a third-party password manager, Keeper, which came with a glaring browser plugin flaw -- a malicious website could steal passwords. Ormandy's copy was an MSDN image meant for developers, but Reddit users noted that they received the vulnerable copy of Keeper after clean reinstalls of regular copies and even a brand new laptop.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica that the Keeper team had patched the exploit (in response to Ormandy's private disclosure), so it shouldn't be an issue if your software is up to date. Also, you were only exposed if you enabled the plugin.

However, the very existence of the hole has still raised a concern: are Microsoft's security tests as thorough for third-party apps as its own software? The company has declined to comment, but that kind of screening may prove crucial if Microsoft is going to maintain the trust of Windows users. It doesn't matter how secure Microsoft's code is if a bundled app undermines everything.
