Tax Tip: Keep track of Business Purchases.
You need to be able to prove your business purchases in case of a tax audit.
Be sure and keep written documentation, receipts, etc., so that if you were audited there would be no changes in the taxes due.

Protect Yourself Online from Scams
Have you ever received an email urging you to reply by clicking on a link, otherwise your bank account or credit card might be suspended? If so, you have been solicited by a technique thieves use that is known as "phishing." Phishing emails request you to reply with personal information such as your credit card number or PIN to confirm your identity. Once the thieves receive your personal information, your identity could be at risk.
Thankfully, there are ways to recognize "phishing" emails.
