Executive Decision: Bill Cobb
As tax season approaches, Cramer sat down with Bill Cobb, president and CEO of H&R Block, in his "Executive Decision" segment to discuss the company and the many new changes in this year's tax laws.
Cobb said Obamacare represents the biggest change in the tax code in 20 years. He said the law is complicated and what taxpayers may think is a subsidy is actually an advance tax credit that can be confusing.
Cobb said H&R Block is once again focused on tax preparation, helping individuals and small businesses navigate an increasingly difficult tax code. "We're good at this," Cobb continued.
H&R Block is also innovating in its space, offering its Emerald Card, a debit card on which customers can receive their refunds, then reload and use it afterwards. Cobb said the company issued 2.5 million cards last year alone.
Cobb also touted its "My H&R Block" online service, which lets customers upload receipts and eliminate the proverbial "shoebox full of receipts."
Cramer once again recommended H&R Block's stock as a winner in its industry.
