Tax Prep Co. Agrees to Fine

H&R Block has cut a deal with the feds to resolve a complaint about its services for the deaf. The tax preparation company says it will now provide aids and services to the deaf including interpreters, employee training and new communication policies. On top of that, the Justice Department says Block will pay a $20,000 penalty and $5000 in damages to the person who filed the ADA complaint.
