H&R; Block Reveals Mailing Label Mix-Up

From Associated Press

H&R; Block Inc. mistakenly mailed out free copies of its tax-return software that included the recipients' Social Security numbers on the mailing label, a spokeswoman said.

The company estimates that fewer than 3% of the mailings included the numbers, although the spokeswoman declined to say how many copies of the TaxCut software went out.

H&R; Block began mailing letters to the recipients Dec. 22 warning them about the mistake.
