FL: Audit finds Tampa put city workers at risk of ID theft

Christopher O’Donnell reports:

The city broke federal law and put some workers at risk of identity theft by including their Social Security numbers on child support and other garnishment checks, a city audit found.

The audit of the city’s Accounts Payable department showed Social Security numbers were printed on payment checks sent to banks, creditors and other recipients and also on remittance advice slips kept on file. That violates the 2010 Social Security Number Protection Act, which prohibits government agencies using the number on any check or payment.
