UNI investigates employee tax return problems

The University of Northern Iowa is seeking the assistance of police, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service to investigate after several employees have reported problems with filing tax returns.

More than 50 employees have reported irregularities.  Some report their tax returns were filed by someone else and others have received a refund without filing a return.

The university was first notified on Feb. 6 and created a task force to investigate.

University spokesman Scott Ketelsen says no data breach has been identified in university systems but UNI is offering employees free credit monitoring.  He says no students have reported problems.

Oakland University in Michigan and the University of Maryland report similar circumstances and Arkansas State University had the same problem last February.
