Well give it up because its not possible.

I just got my copy of my extension back from IRS and it looks like it was photocopied on somebody else's form. It has their names, address, SS #'s and signatures.

I wonder how many times my info has been given to somebody else also.

I really don't know who I'd complain to. If I send it to any gov't entity it will probably just be lost on some flunky's desk & probably go nowhere. I was thinking I should send it to the people who's names are on it but I don't want them to have MY info.

They also put social security numbers on IEP forms...I mean every form.
Why they need it beyond me...but the files are locked, but all of the school staff have access to them. You could really have some serious fraud issues if someone decided to take it and use it. The kids would never be the wiser.

Thats horrible!

Kind of like all this HIPPA stuff, I picked up a copy of my file for something at the OB's and they accidentally included osme one elses test results. It was probably already on the copier or something and they didn't look. It probably had their SS# on it too but I didn't notice. They were pretty embarrassed when I handed that back to them. It was even stapled to mine, LOL!
