WASHINGTON D.C. (WKZO) -- We are about 5 weeks away from the tax deadline and the IRS says so far the average refund so far is about $3,211.
They says that may be because more people are able to take advantage of the earned income tax credit this year
IRS Spokesman Luis Garcia says 95% of all Americans now e-file their returns.
He says there is no need to go out and pay for a tax program.
You can get the identical program for free at the IRS website if you make less than 58-thousand per year.
The filing deadline is April 15th.
