One of the most important jobs that accountants can have is assisting their corporate and personal clients in making sure they are in compliance with tax laws and also in filing their taxes. Did you also know that within this realm, protecting taxpayer data is the law? Legally speaking, shielding your clients’ data is of the utmost importance, but how does one make sure they are doing everything they can to ensure every safeguard is in place?
