Fuskie: FYI it is illegal to open mail. I kept a copy of mine too, but only envelopes and didn't open any.

?? I guess I misread what Fuskie was trying to say? I thought he was saying that he put the envelopes regarding the taxes into another envelope and mailed that to the tax people with a letter explaining that the person didn't live there. He then kept a copy of the letter that he sent to the tax office.

I didn't see anything to indicate that he opened the original envelopes.

BTW: it's illegal to open other people's mail, not mail in general :0)
