The Guide is a resource for consumers to use as an outline to get a general understanding of the various HAMP loan modification programs.
In addition, Henry was a Tax Research Analyst with H&R Block at their World Headquarters in Kansas City, MO. Henry worked on the Tax Change Analyst Team and with the “TIGERS” Group (Trusts, IRS Procedure, Gifts, Estates, Retirement, and State/local). Henry monitored six states for tax regulatory changes in Arizona, Hawaii, Indiana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. He also provided H&R Block Franchisees, located across the nation, with tax research support for questions relating to Trusts, IRS Procedure, Gifts, Estates, Retirement, and State/local issues.
