You know you've found a good CRM software if:

You can create customized messages for customers and set up prompts so your employees (no matter where they are) know exactly how often a customer has been contacted and what information they have received.

Other capacities you should look for?
- customizable and continuously updated dashboards
- centralized customer data whether on-premises or in the cloud
- scalability
- easy integration with all your other software and modules

So, why exactly should you amend your federal tax return?

1. INCOME: Late arrival/corrected W-2s and 1099s or unreported income are important reasons to file an amended return. You want what you filed to match the IRS's records.

2. FILING STATUS: Single, Married Filing Jointly, Married Filing Separately, Head of Household -- Depending on your circumstances, a different filing status may help your tax situation and be a good reason to file an amended return.

3. MISSED DEDUCTIONS: Incorrectly claim certain expenses? Forget to claim them? Accidentally include or leave out a dependent? The same goes for missed tax credits (and there are a lot of them right now).

4. CHANGES IN TAX LAW: The ever-busy IRS sometimes clarifies a rule or a court ruling down the road – possibly creating a tax break for you. Check with us on this one anytime.
