Approximately 50k tax filings lost by Youngstown OH tax agency

Income taxes filed by approximately 50,000 citizens in Youngstown and Girard, Ohio before July 2012 may be victims of a Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) breach caused by a lost DVD disc.  The discs contained income tax filings which include taxpayer names, addresses, dates of birth, and social security numbers.

The DVD disc was noted as missing when backup DVDs were beign destroyed in November 2015.

The Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) purports to be sending notices to those possibly impacted and will be offering credit monitoring services for one year to those notified.
