The Indiana Attorney General also sent a letter to the nearby tax preparer to find out how customer information ended up in the trash.
According to the IRS' website, once taxpayer information is no longer required, it must be returned to the taxpayer or properly disposed of – which includes burning or shredding the data.
The business could be served with a warning or a lawsuit, depending on the outcome of the investigation.
