A woman found tax return information lying on the ground in front of an abandoned Jackson Hewitt on or around October 22. Hundreds of documents were exposed. The building owner called a shredding company to dispose of the documents, but ended up leaving them outdoors until the disposal company arrived.  The person responsible claimed that all the records were over four years old and were difficult to transport from the office.  The paperwork came from the Jackson Hewitt office at 1734 Divisadero St.
