EIU INVESTIGATES FALSE TAX RETURNS
A number of Eastern Illinois University employees have reported that their tax returns were not accepted by the IRS because their Social Security numbers have already been used to file individual returns. There is no indication that an information breach occurred at the university; University data are encrypted so as to be unintelligible to unauthorized readers.

We will continue to investigate this issue. University employees with a similar experience should call the Office of the Vice President for Business Affairs at 581-2921.

Information on identify theft with respect to the IRS is available here.

The IRS has identified tax refund fraud as an area of emphasis (see here).

Media reports indicate tax refund fraud has occurred this spring at other universities.

ETHICS -- POLITICAL CAMPAIGNING
Please remember that university employees may not misappropriate university time, resources or property by engaging in prohibited political activities for the benefit of any campaign for elective office or any political organization. A recent OEIG report states that using university computers or university property such as email accounts (this would also include Listserves) constitutes misappropriation of university resources when used for a prohibited political activity. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
