The IRS has already warned the number of refund this time around will be smaller than that of the previous year. Last year where the USA taxpayers got the stimulus check payments, CTCs in form of tax credit, the numbers of tax credits were naturally higher. However, this time it will not follow the same route.

Eric Bronnenkant in his conversation with Money explained that the average tax credits will go down this time as the rolling off of the benefits in the pandemic era is happening. As there are less complexities and the taxpayers are now getting comfortable slowly to file their taxes sooner, IRS has thus already reached the 87billion dollars mark despite the reduction in credits.
