Have You Renewed W2/1099?
Reminder: January 31st is the new deadline for filing W-2s with the SSA—whether you use paper forms or e-file. January 31st is also the deadline for filing Form 1099-MISC with the IRS by paper or e-file, if you are reporting nonemployee compensation payments in box 7.
New Phishing Scam Targets Tax Professionals
"Although the IRS knows of only a handful of cases to date, tax professionals are encouraged to be on the lookout for these scams and never to click on unexpected links in emails."
We know of no attempts to target CFS customers with such a scam, and we don't expect there will be any. Cybercriminals generally don't bother counterfeiting smaller companies such as ours. However, we urge our customers to be cautious with all emails.
For details, see IRS News Release IR-2016-103 — and for more information on how to protect yourself and your clients from phishing and other scams, see "Protect Your Clients; Protect Yourself" and Publication 4557, as well as our March 2016 e-news article, "How to Avoid Phishing Scams."
