NORCROSS, GA, April 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta shredding firm, A Shred Ahead, would like to take a moment to remind homeowners and businesses to shred their dated tax documents. Many people simply discard these papers in the garbage, assuming there is no way they could ever be a victim of identity theft. The company notes that not all data should be tossed, however. Although it happens to just a small percentage of people, the IRS performs many audits every year. In the (unfortunate) event that this happens to you, you will want to be prepared for it. The only way to do this the right way is by having all necessary income documentation in order. The Atlanta shredding services firm recommends keeping the last three years' worth of income statements in a safe or other secure device. According to John Chapman, "Tax time is a hectic time for everyone, but it does serve to remind us that all of our personal information is written down somewhere. To stay organized and to prevent identity theft, you should hire a shredding service. Atlanta is a very populated city, so this is particularly true for residents who live here.
Invest in a Safe
Cheap and tamper-resistant, a home safe is one the best investments you can make. A Shred Ahead recommends keeping tax documents in a labeled folder for ease of access, and to never give your safe unlock combination out to anyone. Remember, it only takes one mistake for someone to steal your personal information. When this happens, it can sometimes be impossible to stop criminals before they spend money and ruin credit.
