We all are, at one point or another, hoarders. Unlike the ones you see on TV, however, what we hoard isn’t directly in front of us, reminding us we’re overdue for some Spring-cleaning, but it’s equally capable of getting us in trouble with the law.

As daunting as income tax season is for individuals every year, an equally pressing and year round concern for businesses is compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act. SOX legislation was enacted in 2002 in order to mandate accountancy regulations for publicly traded companies.
