While many Americans receive a federal tax refund each year, the IRS is saying this year refunds will be smaller. Tax experts say this is in part due to the expiration of certain tax breaks, like the Child Tax Credit, which was apart of the American Rescue Plan.

The IRS is also urging tax payers to submit their taxes online, to best avoid delays. Those who file online can get their refund back within 21 days, the IRS said.

The deadline to submit this year is April 18.
