PRIVACY POLICY

General

This Privacy Policy applies to the website of TechCORE MSS, all of its divisions, and outlines the information TechCORE MSS and its divisions may collect and how we may use that information.

Confidentiality for Tax Preparation Services

The Federal Trade Commission has issued regulations that require tax preparation firms to provide an annual statement of firm privacy policies. Here is our Tax Preparation Confidentiality policy

We handle all tax-related information you provide us with the utmost confidentiality. Your tax-related personal information will only be shared with members of our firm who need to know this information in order to complete the work you have hired our firm to do. When you engage us, we will not disclose your tax-related personal information to anyone outside our firm without your express written permission to do so, or unless we are legally required to do so. For example, if a mortgage lender contacts our office for a copy of your return or information about it, we will ask that you provide written permission prior to our responding to that request.

You should also be aware that anything you tell us during the interview for the preparation of your tax return is confidential, but not protected from the IRS. Privileged communications (those that are protected from IRS authority to compel our testimony) are limited to non-criminal tax advice on matters before the IRS or non-criminal tax proceedings in federal courts. Although we consider any information you provide us as confidential, return preparation engagements are not covered by advisor-client privilege.

If you feel the nature of any subject matter to be discussed requires protected communications, please raise that issue so that we can discuss your possible need to consult with an attorney for legal advice.

Confidentiality for All Other Requested Services

Outside of IRS-initiated tax preparation information requests, if you feel the nature of any subject matter to be discussed requires protected communications, please raise that issue so that we can discuss your possible need to consult with an attorney for legal advice.
