Leaders from the Internal Revenue Service, state tax agencies and tax preparation community conculded their Security Summit on Identity Theft and Fraud. The terms used refer to types of crimes in which someone wrongfully and willfully acquires and/or uses another individual's personal data in a way that involves fraud and deception often for economic gain. New safeguards were recommended and other actions were implemented to combat tax-related identity theft. Three working groups emerged from the Summit: Authentication, Information Sharing, and Strategic Threat Assessment and Response.

On December 15, Yahoo announced they were suspicious that their system may have been hacked. That would be about 1,000,000,000 users. In 2017, we will be more adamant about file transmission via encrypted FTP rather than email attachments. This of course will lead to additional steps on both your part and our part.
The security of our client's information is a primary objective!
