KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – H&R Block says it’s laying off 250 workers, citing a disappointing tax season.

The Kansas City Star reports the downsizing announced Tuesday by the Kansas City, Missouri-based company amounts to 12.6 percent of its workforce.

H&R Block said it handled roughly 19.6 million tax returns in the just-completed tax season. That’s more than 4 percent less than last year.

The company says it expects a revenue decline this year and will release a full report June 9.

H&R Block’s CEO, Bill Cobb, is vowing to be aggressive in attracting business next tax season.
