BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - It’s been about a month since the Vermont Department of Labor mistakenly sent the wrong 1099 tax forms to people across the state revealing personal information.

Officials this week promised to have the revised forms in the mail by next week, in addition to other measures to protect claimants’ personal information.

Darren Perron spoke with Vt. Labor Commissioner Michael Harrington for an update on what went wrong and how the department is making sure it doesn’t happen in the future.
