Let Master Lock Vault Help You Through Tax Season, Plus Enter Their Sweepstakes to Win $1,000 and This Giveaway for a Laptop Lock and Document Storage Box! #LSSS

My husband is an accountant, so he knows firsthand how busy tax season can be! He does several corporate taxes, as well as our personal taxes. And we have two grown sons who also seek advice on their taxes. You may not have to prepare as many returns as he does, but it’s still a hassle to keep all of your documents in order, track down missing items, and actually prepare your tax forms. Therefore, anything that can make doing taxes less painful is always helpful!

Fortunately, Master Lock has a terrific program called Master Lock Vault. It’s like a digital safe deposit box. It makes it easy to secure digital duplicates of your important documents, such as passports, wills, tax returns, bank statements, and other critical items. You can also save passwords, user names, and combination codes. Recent security breaches have everyone concerned, but you can feel secure with Master Lock Vault because they use industry-leading 256-bit SSL data encryption, strong authentication controls, redundant firewall protection, and intrusion-detection monitoring.

And here’s another reason to join Master Lock Vault: the “Tax Relief Rewards Sweepstakes”! When you utilize the Master Lock Vault to organize your tax filing process this year, you have the chance to win $1,000 to supplement your tax refund or help ease the burden of paying additional taxes! To enter, just register for a Vault account at www.MasterLockVault.com. Once your account has been activated, you will receive an email containing the sweepstakes entry form. Existing Vault users who have opted in for brand communications will receive an email with the sweepstakes entry form once the sweepstakes kicks off on March 17. Registered users can also enter through: http://masterlock.com/tax_relief/. One entry will be accepted per person through April 16, 2014 when the sweepstakes closes. Five winners will be drawn at random.

Finally, Master Lock offers many other products to help secure your important documents, like those being offered in the giveaway below!
