Our BRP-it manager Mason sent us this awesome article that has valuable information about your computer’s protection and all the risks we face now, and will face in the future. We’re touching on some major points he’s focusing on to keep you updated and keep your information safe.

You may have heard about the recent cyber attacks that affected large corporations such as FedEx, Microsoft, and many foreign countries. What you may not have known is that it is still a threat to not just your personal computer, but to your business and your clients as well. One of the biggest factors is not being protected properly or updating your malware. Most of the attacks have been outside of the US but there is no telling if this will continue to be the case.

So, what can you do?

Never click on a any suspicious e-mail or links: A hospital had to pay roughly $900,000 to repair a breach that was caused by an employee clicking on an unsafe web link. Doing this opens your computer up to many security risks! Although your cost might not be this high, it can be detrimental to your personal information whether financial, personal, client information, etc.

Update your software and protection regularly: According to the article, British government was spending about $64 million to improve cyber security because most computers were still running on outdated software. It’s that important! Making sure that your computer is as protected as possible is never a waste of time or money. The benefits most certainly outweigh the costs.

Deadline for Tax-Exempt Organizations is Near!

The deadline for tax-exempt organizations is coming up soon, May 15th. We received an article from the IRS regarding Tax-exempt organizations and wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of important factors to take into consideration when it comes to filing Form 990 for these organizations.

What you need to know:

1. Loss of Tax-Exempt Status: Any organizations that do not file annual reports for three straight years will lose their exempt status so it is important to always file. The 2007 Pension Protection Act requires most tax exempt organizations to file Form 990 with the exception of Churches and Church related organizations.

2. NO Personal Info!  Do not include personal information such as social security number, information about donors, clients, or benefactors. This could give rise to identity theft since these forms are often made public.

3. File Electronically Whenever Possible: This reduces the risk of including SSNs and other personal information. E-filing also makes the process smoother and quicker with the IRS receiving your information.

4. What to file? Any organizations with an average annual gross receipts of $50,000 or less will file an electronic notice Form 990-N. Organizations with more than $50,000 will file Form 990 or 990-EZ. Private organizations will file 990-PF. If you need to file a six-month extension for your organization, use Form 8868.

5. Check Tax-Exempt Status: The IRS publishes the list of organizations that have lost their tax-exempt status for failure to file for three years. Any organization that wants to have their status reinstated must pay any fees and file an application. To check a status, visit Select Check.

Is Your Personal Information REALLY Protected?

Protecting your personal information such as social security number and finances is always important any time of year, but most importantly during tax time.
We found an article published on the IRS.gov website about protection specific to computers and we wanted to share some key facts.
The IRS says to treat your personal information like cash, don’t hand it out to just anyone. Much of your information can be taken and used to steal your identity and open new accounts. Be wary of websites or people asking for personal information claiming that it is necessary, many scammers will attempt just about anything to get this information from you.
What practical steps can you take to protect yourself better?
  1. Avoid Phishing Scams:
Scammers can pose as banks, credit card companies, IRS, or third party working for governing authorities. Different methods can be used to get your attention such as winning something, urgent personal information update requirements. Never open an attachment or link of a suspicious e-mail. These oftentimes contain malware and can harm or hack your computer and information.
  1. Protect Personal Data:
Do not carry your social security card with you or anything that may include this number. Do not include this number when filling out forms on paper or online. Scammers will ask you to include this number in documents even when it is not needed.
  1. Use Strong Passwords:
When creating or updating passwords to your online data, always use 10-12 characters. Try not to use common information such as important dates or names. Be as unpredictable as possible! Don’t use the same password for multiple accounts and never send these through text or email. Always use a secure Wi-Fi network to prevent other networks from accessing your information.
  1. Use Security Software:
Always have security software installed on your computer. Most come with a pre-installed firewall, but it is important to have one that protects from viruses, Trojans, spyware and adware. Parents, use the parental control options and educate children about suspicious websites and emails.
  1. Back Up Files:
It is important to always save important documents such as tax returns, finances, etc into a removable USB as a back up. Have paper copies to help in the next year’s tax preparation and always keep track of where these are stored and who has access to them.
Business Resource Partners will help with your tax needs including preparation and e-filing. Time is almost out for tax filing! Give us a call or stop by our office to meet with one of our tax prep experts!
