tax experts say your tax refunds this year could be less or you could owe money. that's even after years of receving refunds. news 10's abby kirk is live outside stadler and company tax service in terre haute. she's there to explain why you're seeing the numbers drop. abby? yes, your refund could be "lower" this year for multiple reasons. a local tax expert tells me, you're seeing it decrease because of changes in the law. that could be --- local income tax deductions and or if you have a new limit on property. refunds can also be smaller this year because the i-r-s has changed the way they withhold in pay checks. withholding tables were changed so that people received more money in their paychecks during the year. another tax code change impacted the child tax credit. people who can use this credit were given one thousand dollars per child. Now they'll receive two thousand dollars per child. if you have any questions about filing your taxes, contact a local tax preparer or the i-r-s. for now, reporting live in terre haute, ak, news 10.
