My Tax Tip is for those who do your own taxes on the computer using one of the programs such as Turbo Tax or anything similar. Since you are putting loads of personal or personal business information on the computer, I have a 99.9% method of not having your information hacked. What I have been doing for the last 6 years or so is to place all the input infomation that you use and save, I save it on an SD chip (think digital cameras recording media) to record and save the information. I also use a laptop that I turn off the Wi-Fi connection. This way, when you are working on a stand alone puter, you also save your data on easily removable media. This way, if someone hacks your laptop, there is no persoal data on it, only the operable program that appears you have done nothing.
