WETHERSFIELD, Conn. — Connecticut's Department of Labor says about 27,000 tax forms mailed out to people who collected unemployment compensation last year contain a printing error that has information about other people.
The department is required to report unemployment compensation payments of $10 or more on a form known as UC-1099G. The affected 27,000 forms contain the correct information at the top but include someone else's information at the bottom.
The department is identifying the people potentially affected by the error. It says it plans to offer credit protection because the forms contain Social Security numbers.
Labor Commissioner Sharon Palmer has apologized for the inconvenience and urged people to check their forms for accuracy. The department is reprinting the forms and will mail out corrected versions.
