The Human Rights Division (HRD) is investigating whether tax refund anticipation loans, or RALs, are discriminatory. HRD suspects that tax-preparation providers such as H&R Block, Jackson Hewitt and Liberty Tax Service are targeting low-income individuals, minority communities and military families for the loans at rates up to 70 percent.

In New York City alone, RALs cost those groups $324 million.
