Oct 10 (Reuters) - U.S. tax preparer H&R Block Inc said it is exploring strategic alternatives for H&R Block Bank, which could result in the company no longer being regulated by the Federal Reserve as a savings and loan holding company.
H&R Block said it does not expect any material impact on its earnings for fiscal 2013.
The company's shares were down 4 percent in premarket trading at $17.01.
