If you’re a small business owner, you probably think that meeting your PCI compliance requirements and filing your IRS tax return have a lot in common. Both are overwhelmingly tedious, confusing, and complicated. There’s so much jargon that you need to spend a great deal of time just figuring it out what is required.

If you are a typical tax filer, you have three options—file the return by hand, pay someone else to prepare your tax return, or file the return using tax preparation software such as TurboTax. The advent of online tax preparation software has gained a lot of traction over the past few years, mainly because it substantially reduces the time taken to file your tax return. It also has the added convenience of allowing you to access your tax return anywhere in the world.

Here at ANX, we consider TruPCI to be the “TurboTax” of managing PCI compliance.  To underscore that point, consider the main functionality of TruPCI:

  • Provides an easy-to-use wizard and user interface for you to complete the PCI self-assessment questionnaire and vulnerability scan
  • Helps you manage your compliance follow-up items by providing a powerful task management tool

ANX also provides a wealth of information and access to PCI experts to get answers to your PCI questions in layman’s terms.

So if you’re still preparing your taxes on paper forms, it’s time to stop torturing yourself and start using online tax preparation tools.  Likewise, if you’ve tried completing your PCI Self Assessment Questionnaire by hand, do yourself a favor and invest in an online PCI tool.  ANX has a great set of tools if you’re out there kicking the tires.  Check them out at
