H&R Block Offering Update for its Tax Software at $24.95 But Others Get the Same Software for $9.95

by Jeff Sovern

A friend forwarded me the two images below.  My friend, a prior H&R Block customer, received the 2017 software update for $24.95 while his son, who has not used the software in the past, was offered the identical 2018-01-11-PHOTO-00002495 2018-01-11-PHOTO-00002497

software for $9.95. This type of price discrimination always makes me wonder about whether there is disparate impact discrimination going on; here, for example, the older customer pays more than twice what the younger consumer does.
