Revenue Department Investigates Personal Information Breach

They have been taken down but an investigation has now been opened to find out how this happened. The Revenue Department's, Stephanie Marquis.
This is not the first time the state Revenue Department has inadvertently put out personal data. Social Security numbers were placed on the mailing labels of 171 thousand tax forms in 2006. Over a year, five thousand tax forms had Social Security numbers in the address panes. Officials said neither incident resulted in any cases of identity theft. And they’ve made a number of security improvements since then.
