IN: Burned tax documents found in alley

Abbey Doyle reports that burnt – but still readable – tax documents were found behind Instant Tax Service, 3735 Madison Ave., in Anderson, Indiana.

Employees inside denied burning the documents, but the manager never returned calls from the paper.

A look through papers found in the alley revealed copies of W-2 forms, complete with total wages, employer names and addresses, and the employees’ full names, addresses and Social Security numbers; old phone bills with amounts owed and other identifying information; loan documents; and entire state return and several unidentified pieces of tax documents.
