Someone noticed that thousands of intact personal documents had been dumped in an unsealed dumpster.  He called a local news crew and they came to recover and store the documents.  The personal documents included applications, resumes, check books, federal income tax forms, and even patient diagnosis forms.  The information covered a period between 2003 and 2007.  A new employee of Tax Matters dumped the documents without shredding them.
