It Gets Worse: More than 500,000 Additional Ohio Taxpayers’ Data Lost

Gov. Ted Strickland said today that it now appears there was an additional 561,000 taxpayers data that was lost in a recent theft of a back-up tape from a state employee.

The new tally is:
-561,126 taxpayers who had an uncashed Ohio personal income tax refund check at some time during the last three years

-8,123 former state employees

-86,968 vendors.


State officials are saying they have no reason to believe any of this data has been used for identity theft.

Yes, of course not. The thief just wanted to use the tape to hold a rattling muffler on their car. ugh
