Some employees and volunteers at St. Mary School in Aberdeen are affected by a data breach at the Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle. Sources tell us some are finding that their taxes were already filed. Some returns have been rejected, and the IRS is working with the church to identify victims at 170 parishes in western Washington.
