The company that promises "Always low prices. Always," will soon be able to offer it's customers low cost tax preparation services while they shop.

H&R Block Chairman Mark Ernst announced the latest developments on a distribution arrangement with Wal-Mart at Block's annual shareholder meeting this week.

According to a company spokesperson, H&R Block will operate modular office units in over 850 Wal-Mart stores around the United States. The kiosks will accommodate up to three tax preparers at any one time.

H&R Block also offers tax season preparation services at Sears, Roebuck & Co. stores, and will continue with that arrangement.

According to a company spokesperson, H&R Block hired over 107,000 seasonal tax preparers last year for tax season. It is unclear yet as to whether the arrangement with Wal-Mart will boost that total for next year's tax season.
