Tax Returns and your Zip File Viruses are back. You would think by now we all know that our Tax Viruses come with our tax return rejection notices. But for some, it's the same old thing, Oh NO!!! I've been REJECTED!!! Now, before you install that virus hidden in PLAIN VIEW as that ZIP document that clearly says to RUN or download then DOUBLE CLICK! Let's think for 2 minutes so we get 10 seconds of brain power involved.

Your State Return Has Been Rejected!

What this means:
Your 2012 Personal return "TAX_910418223" has been rejected. All information has been reviewed and validated by Intuit, please find more information attached. You will be prompted to open (view) the file or save (download) it to your computer.

 

You see it each and every year. 

It seems like it's from your online tax preparers website and you panic because you were expecting a big refund. 

You panic so much you download the attached zip and have it run instead of calling your 12 year old IT GURU to check things out. 

Now you're infected and all your tax papers are on that computer. 

What do you do now?

You pay and pay again. 

When you bring your taxes to the online world I want you to promise you will never save anything to your computer. I mean the one you watch Youtube videos on it's the one you want to do your taxes on. 

Let's get with the program. 

SCAMS are designed to touch your emotions so you don't think. 

This year let's try something different. 

When you get your TAX RETURN REJECTED (I got mine before I filed) let's ask one simple question. 

Is it a virus?

Now, I will answer that question free of charge and expect no compensation at all from you at this time. 

The answer, YES!!! Your Tax Return Rejection Notice is a virus. 

Now, logon online to the secured website you filed your taxes at and view your progress. I bet you find that it's been submitted and you're just waiting for that direct deposit. 

So this year, use that tax return for something cool and not that Virus Removal shop down the street. 

 

Have fun!
