Are the new tax laws making Americans procrastinate to file this year? Possibly. The IRS reported that nearly two million fewer tax returns have been filed as of the beginning of March, compared to the same time last year. But there’s good news: tax refunds seem to be up slightly, according to a recent report by Credit Sesame. Refunds averaged $22 higher than they did last year among those surveyed in mid-March.
