H&R Block Class Action Settles for $19.4 million

The Court granted approval to a $19.4 million settlement providing for the repayment of program fees charged under the H&R Block Express IRA program. As a result of the lawsuit, the Express IRAs were also converted to H&R Block Easy IRAs, which carry fewer fees.
