It’s Tax Time. 5 Things To Keep In Mind Regarding Tech and the IRS

It’s tax time again – don’t we all know that – coming up on April 15 is the deadline. While it’s a very busy time period for our accountants , the IRS and we business owners, it’s important to keep a few things in mind, suggests the security experts at Symantec.
  1. The IRS will never email you… ever
  2. Phishing requests via email are everywhere
  3. Your postal mail is not the safest way to receive checks from the IRS
  4. Protect your financial information from outside threats, and secure files with password-protected directories and accounts
  5. Back up your financial data

While you fret over your taxes – don’t fret so much that your security vigilance is lowered.
