H&R Block's fiscal second-quarter loss narrowed, helped by cost-cutting efforts, the company said Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012. Revenue climbed mostly because of a strong tax season in Australia. The nation's largest tax preparation company typically turns in a loss in the August-to-October period because it takes in most of its revenue during the U.S. tax season. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma)
