December 19, 2011Now that we are well into the month of December, it’s time to offer another friendly reminder to start getting your tax documents together. It’s also a good time to remind you to use your portals for both uploading your documents and receiving your tax return. Wouldn’t it be great to go completely paperless this year? And you can’t beat the convenience. No dropping off papers or disks, and no trips to the office to sign your return. It can all be handled online…from your secure, personal client portal!We’ve worked hard in our firm to go paperless, and we encourage you to do the same by using your portal. Let’s all go green together this year and enjoy a speedier and more secure tax process.
The combination of running a business and your life and preparing for tax time can drive some people into a slight panic. But no need to get stressed if you are prepared. Now is the time to start organizing all documents required to file your tax return.
Like the old paraphrased saying goes: In this world, two things are certain—death and taxes. The recent federal tax overhaul changed a lot of rules, so it’s as important as ever to understand your tax obligations, including those on Social Security benefits.
Unfortunately, cyber scammers never take a vacation. In fact, the IRS has issued a warning of a surge in fraudulent emails that bait potential phishing victims with fake tax transcripts. Links within these emails lead recipients to documents containing the well-known malware, Emotet.
