IRS accidentally sends Florida man two other peoples' tax returns

Stapled-in with his return, a local man got the surprise of the tax season when he found two other people's paper returns in with his own.

Cory Wannick said the IRS sent him back the paper tax return he filed because he signed it in the wrong place. "Went to the post office yesterday to send it back after re-signing it. Noticed that my return was considerably heavier than I originally sent it," he said.

When he looked page by page, Wannick was stunned, finding not one, but two other people's paper returns stapled together with his. "Which I thought was a huge mistake on the IRS's part," Wannick said.
