Eastern Michigan University says some of its employees were among the millions of people affected by an IRS data breach back in February.  

The school has been receiving a growing number of reports from employees about fraudulently filed tax returns.  EMU spokesman Geoff Larcom says they are working with the affected employees.

"This is an attempt to reach out and offer resources to help people navigate through this if they've experienced any of this fraud."

Larcom says there is no indication that EMU's systems have suffered any kind of data breach.
