When it comes to U.S. businesses, tax time is fax time. As we get closer to Tax Day (April 18th) businesses across the country will be using their enterprise fax systems to compile the necessary documents and stay in touch with their accountants, all so that they can proper file their taxes with the IRS.
It’s at this time of year where having a reliable fax server is more important than ever. Not only will businesses need to securely transmit sensitive information (and ensure that it reaches the required recipients) they will need to remain compliant with regulations outlined in HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, FINRA and other regulatory bodies.
Is your fax server and software up to date and working to the best of its ability? If not, here’s why you should invest in a better fax software like RightFax.
