Tax season underway


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Tax season is officially underway.

The IRS began accepting and processing last year's returns Friday.

The season started 10 days later this year because of government shutdown last October.

The deadline is the same though, April 15.

The IRS says it expects to receive 148 million returns this year and the majority will be filed electronically.

About three out of four taxpayers will get a refund.
