Vermont Governor Phil Scott is taking action to address thousands of tax forms mailed in error by the state Labor Department.

The governor sent what his office called two senior-level tactical response teams to the Labor Department to expedite response to the 1099G tax form errors. 

The state auditor has also been tasked with conducting a audit to determine the cause of the error and recommend improvements.

A new deputy commissioner has also been appointed.

The move comes after 55,000 forms were corrupted, leading to a recall of all 80,000 forms, which may have included Social Security numbers.
