SLCC students learn their tax documents were lost

SALT LAKE CITY — Forty-two thousand students at Salt Lake Community College are learning that their tax documents got lost.

An email sent to students and obtained by KSL Newsradio explained that a memory drive with tax documents for the students somehow fell out of an envelope on its way from a contracted company to the college.

SLCC Spokesman Joy Tlou said that when the college processes these documents that deal with the 1098-T tax form used for getting educational tax credits, the college goes through a third-party vendor and uses a secured cloud server to access the information. That information is then also backed up on a memory drive and sent to the college.

They are unsure what exactly happened to the drive or where it may be, but Tlou said that they are confident that the students’ data that was lost cannot be used to steal any of their students’ identities.

The email sent out to students also refers people to an FAQ page for more information.
