A St. Louis County man is accused of choking an H&R Block worker after apparently becoming enraged about his tax situation.
With less than a month left for Americans to enroll in insurance plans under President Obama's health care overhaul, companies like H&R Block and Jackson Hewitt Tax Service may be the administration's secret weapon in getting people to sign up.
The president's stunning proclamation that he will ignore the Constitution's checks and balances to go it alone puts new pressure on the judiciary. In the tug of war between the three branches of government, it often falls to judges to take the pen out of the hand of an overeager executive.
H&R Block has stopped handing out real dollar bills bearing stickers with its 2014 tax season marketing message.
A House committee is expanding its investigation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius after the Cabinet secretary acknowledged she reached out to three more health care companies to raise money to assist in implementing President Obama's health care law.
President Obama's top health official on Tuesday strenuously defended her decision to ask two major organizations to contribute to a nonprofit that is promoting the president's new national health care law, saying she didn't violate any laws.

While much of Washington is consumed by the debate over tax increases scheduled to take effect next year, big tax hikes already have gone into effect for millions of families and businesses this year.
On Monday, the FBI turned off servers that had allowed thousands of malware-stricken computers to continue using the Internet. The personal computers _ both Windows PCs and Macs _ are corrupted by a virus known as DNSChanger. Without the servers, the machines wouldn't know how to locate websites and send email.
Procrastinators across the land get a break this year: Tax filing day is April 17. It's normally the 15th, but that falls on a Sunday this year. The next day is Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia and Patriots' Day in Massachusetts. So, we all get 48 more hours to sweat over our returns.
Taxes, like death, may be inescapable. But, at the very least, taxpayers have always enjoyed the freedom to offload the headache of doing their taxes to the tax-return preparer of their choice.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke on Thursday tried to reassure U.S. soldiers, a group hit hard by high unemployment, that the Fed is working to strengthen the economy.
