RSS, sometimes known as Really Simple Syndication, is a popular means of sharing content (such as news headlines) without requiring readers to constantly visit a Web site to see what’s new.
You can sign up to receive RSS feeds directly from JKLasser.com.com to your desktop or mobile device. By selecting the feed(s) you’re interested below, we’ll let you know when we have new tax articles, tax news items, and Ask J.K. questions and answers.
Choose a Feed Type
In general, the first thing you need is something called a News Reader (also known as a News Aggregator). They will download and display RSS feeds for you. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. All allow you to display and subscribe to the RSS feeds you want.
Once you have chosen a News Reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want. For example, if you would like the latest tax news from JKLasser.com, simply visit the JKLasser.com Tax News page and you will notice an orange RSS button in the upper right column.
Some browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Netscape 8, Opera and Safari RSS, have functionality which automatically pick up RSS feeds for you. For more details on these, please check their websites.
Different News Readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to take this into account when you make your choice.
Many free and commercial news aggregators are available for download.
