IRS Involved In ID Fraud Cases

It could be a data entry error, or a case of identity fraud.  Two Putnam County residents have reported to authorities recently that someone else had used their social security numbers to file income tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service.  They say they got that information from the IRS after they tried to file their own returns.  In both cases, they received messages from the agency that returns had already been filed using their social security numbers.  Both cases are still under investigation.
