Speaking of distractions…Your eMail is the perfect place to get you while your guard is down. A surefire way to infect your computer is to click on the wrong link. What better way to get you to click than to pretend you are FedEX and tell somebody that their address is incorrect or their package is delayed. There have been a number of Phishing campaigns using the brand names you use everyday as a means of getting specific information from you or to infect your computer or device for other purposes. Our number one rule is DON’T CLICK on anything. Unless you know who and what you are expecting to receive like “a PDF from Sue in dispatch”, assume that someone may be trying to fake you out. There have been a number of these emails that include a document that will hopefully be caught by your virus software and quarantined.
It is better to slow down and use email cautiously that to compromise yourself or your employer’s computer systems.
IRS data indicates that fewer than 1% of all individual income tax returns are audited each year. That’s true, but some taxpayers are more vulnerable than others. For starters, the IRS is more likely to audit taxpayers who report high incomes because that’s where larger amounts of underpaid taxes might be found.
In addition, certain taxpayers face more scrutiny because of how they earn their living. Self-employed individuals generally, those who file Schedule C, Profit or Loss From a Business—may be audited more than other taxpayers. The same is true for professionals and business owners, who could see their business as well as their individual tax returns examined. The bottom line is that taxpayers with relatively high incomes as well as those who have control over their workplace bookkeeping can expect to face IRS queries at some point.
