Client Security is No Longer Optional with the New FTC Red Flag Rules for Identity Theft
Most CPAs, EAs and Tax Preparers don’t realize that they are subject to the Federal Trade Commission’s “Red Flag” regulations. Although these regulations have been in place for some time, enforcement has been delayed until sometime in 2010, giving small firms the opportunity to comply with the regulations. Click here to review the ClientWhys analysis of how these regulations apply to CPAs, EAs and Tax Preparers.
Our lockbox product will be the centerpiece to help prevent identify theft of client documents. Our analysis of the “Red Flag” rules includes a Free Word Document Template to help you develop your own policy and written rules. The template can be customized to your firm, but acts as the starting point in developing your own Red Flag policy. More information regarding the “Red Flag” identity theft rules can be obtained from the FTC website.
