Explanatory Note: Equifax Inc. (the “Company”) completed its acquisition of TALX Corporation (“TALX”) on May 15, 2007. This Amendment No. 1 amends the Current Report on Form 8-K of the Company dated May 15, 2007 to provide the financial statement information required by Item 9.01 of Form 8-K which was excluded from the initial filing in reliance on Items 9.01(a)(4) and 9.01(b)(2) of Form 8-K.

This excerpt taken from the EFX 10-K filed Apr 1, 2005.


The purpose of this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A is to amend our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2004, which was filed on March 16, 2005. This Amendment is being filed solely to correct an inadvertent error in the Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm on Consolidated Financial Statements (the “Audit Opinion”), included in Part II, Item 8, Financial Statements and Supplementary Data, on page 48 of the original filing of this Form 10-K Report. Ernst & Young LLP has revised its Audit Opinion to delete an erroneous reference in the last paragraph to Note 2 of the Notes to our Consolidated Financial Statements, for information concerning the adoption by us in 2003 of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 146, “Accounting for Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.” Our adoption of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 146, effective January 1, 2003, was previously disclosed in our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2002, in Note 1 to the Notes to our Consolidated Financial Statements.

In addition, as required by Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, this Amendment contains the complete text of Item 8 and Item 15, and our principal executive officer and principal financial officer are providing re-executed Rule 13a-14 certifications dated as of the date of this Amendment and are also furnishing written statements pursuant to Title 18 United States Code, as added by Section 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. The certifications are attached as Exhibits 31.1, 31.2, 32.1 and 32.2 to this Amendment. The Exhibit section also has been revised to include as Exhibit 23.1 the updated consent of the Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm. Unaffected Items or Exhibits are not included in this Amendment.

Except as described above, no other changes have been made to the original Form 10-K  and this Form 10-K/A does not amend, update or change the financial statements or any other items or disclosures in the original Form 10-K.
