Tax Season 2020
As tax season is now in full swing, it is important to talk about the different scams and cybersecurity concerns regarding taxes. Some of the most popular scams include phishing emails, stating they are from the IRS, your financial institutions, or your tax preparer. These emails will also typically contain a sense of urgency to act quickly to either open an attachment, click the link, or for you to send confidential data to them, like your banking info or social security number.
