Identities stolen – IRS about to bill the victims

From the Citizen Tribune:

For Lora and Jamey Costner, a $7,854 federal income tax bill is the painful indigestion that followed two unsatisfying servings of identity theft cooked up by two former Koch Foods employees, records indicate.

The criminal cases involving the Newport married couple and the two illegal immigrants, who IRS records indicate worked for Koch Foods, have been resolved in the court system.

The bitter aftertaste that remains is the unpalatable possibility of having their wages garnished to pay tax bills on income they never earned at the Morristown chicken-processing plant.

Read the whole thing. It’s happened before, and the company in the middle continually plays ignorant.

This just doesn’t pass the smell test – it seems an investigation of Koch Foods is in order.
