Clarksville man gets tax form marked 666, quits

Man quits job over 666 on WA maintenance worker at a Clarksville foundry says he quit his job because his W-2 tax form was stamped with the number 666.

Walter Slonopas told The Tennessean accepting the number would have condemned his soul to hell, noting that it is the biblical “sign of the beast.”

The company that handles payroll for Contech Casting LLC said the number meant that Slonopas’ form was the 666th one it mailed out.

The 52-year-old Slonopas said he had trouble with the number before. He was supposed to be assigned No. 668 to use when he clocked in at his employer’s business. Because of a mix-up, he was assigned 666. He complained and got a new employee number.

A company spokesman said Contech wants to rehire Slonopas.
