The Internal Revenue Service believes that the thieves who gained access to information for more than 100,000 taxpayers were Russian, the Associated Press reported, citing sources.

Thieves used an online service provided by the U.S. government's tax collecting agency to gain access to information from more than 100,000 taxpayers, the IRS revealed Tuesday.

Although IRS Commissioner John Koskinen declined to tell the media if the incursions originated from overseas, the AP cited two unnamed officials briefed on the matter.
