I have worked for companies which are now defunct. Under the listings of those companies, I put "defunct" in parentheses next to the name. You are required to keep your tax info for several years, in case of audit. If you worked there over the required number of years ago, just tell the HR guy the truth. The tax records were past what needs to be on file, and the company is now gone.
