OMC employees reporting tax fraud

ROCHESTER, Minn. — We’ve been telling you about the recent data breach at Olmsted Medical Center.
Now, it’s impacting employees and their taxes.
The Rochester Police Department has received more than 10 reports, where OMC employees have had their taxes filed fraudulently.
Employees have been urged to file their taxes as quick as possible since the breach.
Besides filling out paper work, law enforcement leaders say this will impact them for the rest of their life.
“They then, in turn, send them out a packet full of information to fill out and then they send that in and then the IRS gives them a pin number,” Advanced Crime CPTED Specialist Darrel Hildebrant said. “So, when they file taxes for the rest of their life, they’re going to have to use that pin number.”
Employees have been encouraged to fill out IRS for 14039 and an ID Theft Affidavit.
Those who’ve already experienced tax fraud will have to file a police report and refile taxes, which could be a 180 day process.
