STONY POINT - Dozens of Stony Point Town employees are not receiving their tax funds because criminals hacked their identities.

Kathy Kivlehan was shocked when the IRS told her she couldn't file her tax returns because someone stole her identity.

The breach affected nearly 30 employees from every municipal department.

Stony Point Town Supervisor Jim Monaghan says the IRS informed the workers that someone had already filed using their Social Security numbers.

Town police received the theft reports on April 12. The victims won't receive their tax refunds for a couple more months.
