Wrong information printed on 27,000 tax forms

By CT News Junkie Staff

HARTFORD, Conn. – The Labor Department sent out 250,000 tax forms to individuals who collected unemployment compensation in 2013 and 27,000 of those forms included information about other individuals.

Due to an error in the printing process, the forms contain the correct information on the top portion of the form, while the bottom half of the document contains information pertinent to another individual, the Labor Department said Friday in a press release.

Because the forms contain social security numbers, the agency will also contact claimants that received incorrect forms to offer credit protection. It is also re-printing the forms and will mail them out again. The new mailing will contain the corrected 1099-G and an addressed, pre-paid envelope so the incorrect form can be mailed back to the Connecticut Department of Labor.

“We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause people who are in the process of filing their tax returns and we want to make sure individuals are aware of a possible error,” Labor Commissioner Sharon M. Palmer said. “Individuals receiving a 1099-G for unemployment compensation benefits are asked to check their forms for accuracy.”

Corrected forms will be sent out by the end of the month, but those who need them immediately should click here.

    Forget about the gross incompetence on display once again from our failed experiment in quasi-socialism.
    The next time you hear one of the rats from Hartford claim our economy is on the mend in this state, remember this article.
    According to the state DOL there are 1.6 million workers.
    250,000 were on unemployment at some point last year? That’s 1 in 6 people. That is incredible.
