Missouri Man Assaults H&R Block Employee Because Tax Return

Is this turning into the most violent tax season ever or what? First the guy in Detroit shooting people over his lady friend not getting her refund in cash and now this.

A Missouri man is facing a third degree assault charge after he allegedly choked the shit out of an H&R Block employee. Guess we know who won't be in on getting his billion back, eh?

53-year-old Michael Wright was apparently unhappy with the result of his tax filing, so naturally he shoved his preparer to the ground and choked a Block.

Dude, we get it, taxes are frustrating. It's bad enough the preparer has to work at a St Louis H&R Block, do you really have to choke him while he's down?
