Did you notify the police, since the ID in those forms could give a thief a gold mine!!  Hopefully your car was locked. Notify the Social Security Administration, the IRS and your state tax agency.  Contact all 3 credit bureaus to see what is required to put a fraud alert on your credit accounts.  You can find them at freeannualreport.com.  This fraud alert will require that you be notified any time an account is opened using your Social Security number.  This will be a bit of a hassle for you, but it's better that than the alternative. And check your credit reports at least once a year!

Hope this helps.
