Tax season has started and the IRS says taxpayers should expect to see a lower refund this year.

This is due to key tax credits returning to pre-pandemic amounts.

The earned income and child-dependent care tax credits will also be returning to 2019 standards and will now be $500 as opposed to the $1,500 given in 2021.
