  On January 2, 2008, the Mississippi Attorney General filed an action concerning the Express IRA product in the Chancery Court of Hinds County, Mississippi, First Judicial District (Case No. G-2008-6) entitled Jim Hood, Attorney General for the State of Mississippi, ex rel. the State of Mississippi v. H&R Block, Inc., et al. This action asserts claims concerning the Express IRA product similar to those claims asserted in lawsuits previously disclosed by H&R Block, Inc. in its Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. We intend to defend this case vigorously, but there are no assurances as to its outcome.
