LOS ANGELES (CBS) — "Grey's Anatomy" actress Sandra Oh told Los Angeles police that a hotel employee apparently used her social security number, causing the Internal Revenue Service to come after her for unpaid taxes in 2009, it was reported today.

Oh, 40, a Canadian citizen, reported the mix-up to Los Angeles police Friday afternoon, reported. More information about the investigation was unavailable early today.

The Golden Globe-winning actress is probably best known for her role as Dr. Cristina Yang on the ABC hospital drama.
