ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Tax documents for dozens of St. Paul government retirees, which include Social Security numbers, have been mistakenly mailed to the wrong addresses.

The city says W-2 income tax forms for 134 retirees went to other retirees. The city says it’s switching to a new payroll system and was checking updated addresses for former employees when the glitch occurred. Some addresses were mismatched.

Former firefighter Patrick Smith tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press (https://bit.ly/1zRDoVb ) the mistake has raised new concerns about identity theft. The city reissued Smith’s W-2 when he didn’t receive the original. He says he’ll continue to monitor his accounts closely for possible breaches.
