Don't Take The Bait

As part of the Security Summit effort, the IRS, state tax agencies and the tax industry are holding an education series called “Don’t Take the Bait.”The series, which is part of  the Protect Your Clients, Protect Yourself campaign, focused on raising awareness of the critical need for tax professionals to increase their computer security and be cautious when reviewing their inbox – specifically the successful email scams dubbed spear phishing that identify themselves as a friend, customer or company. Tax professionals must remember that they have not just an obligation but a legal requirement under federal law to protect taxpayer information.
