IRS wants you to be careful with your $$$

Posted by wlpo on December 4, 2016

It seems a Federal Agency so good at getting your money, wants to make sure you don’t loose any to computer hackers. The IRS claims this week as “National Tax Security  Awareness Week”. During the week, the Feds will share information with taxpayers to educate them on how to protect themselves from identity theft and tax scams.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen says taxpayers are entering a period where many will be using sensitive financial  and tax data on their computers.  Tips include: always using security software with firewall and anti-virus protections, learning to recognize and avoid phishing emails, threatening phone calls and texts from thieves, protect your personal data.  Don’t routinely carry your Social Security card and make sure your tax records are secure.
