A former Internal Revenue Service employee was one of three people indicted for fraud and identity theft by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, officials said Tuesday.
Federal prosecutors said that 32-year-old Taylor S. Knight, of Kansas City, worked for the IRS in Kansas City from 2009 to 2012, and allegedly used her position to steal taxpayer identification information to obtain fraudulent tax refunds.
Co-defendants in the six-count indictment are Michael J. Moore, 27, of Kansas City, and Michael Stalcup, 42, of Farley in Platte County. The indictment was filed last week, but unsealed Tuesday after the defendants were arrested.
