Verbatim Offers Digital Data Storage and Backup Solutions This Tax Season

Death and Taxes – oh how we hear that phrase overused, and for my purposes here I plead guilty. Fortunately I am here to talk about the latter and not the former.
Our friends over at Verbatim, maker of digital data storage and backup products, want loyal US taxpayers (or at least tax filers) to remember to back up all your data.

Recent springtime storms across the center of the country bring that suggestion even more to light as this will be one less thing to worry about when Mother Nature turns nasty and you are faced with putting your life back in order.

Uncle Sam (ain’t it cute how we nickname all the things we fear) has seen fit to extend filing deadlines until Monday, April 18, so there is still time to become bleary-eyed in a sea of forms, figures and receipts.

While the terrible weather and the annual tax deadline should have you thinking about backing up your digital data, remember to do it year ‘round. Spring may bring stormy weather but there is still earth, wind and fire that can wreak havoc the rest of the year.
