For the second year in a row, taxpayers may find themselves waiting for their refunds. Treasury officials say it could be another challenging tax season.

Local financial expert Barry Bigelow said several things may cause headaches, including delayed returns and child tax credits paid out ahead of time.

He suggests adjusting tax withholding if you get a return year after year.

"Building up the habit of saving it yourself is a much better way of getting that money and using that money and having it available rather than allowing the IRS to borrow it for 12 months," Bigelow said.

He highly recommends filing early, double checking that all of the information is accurate, and making sure it’s done electronically.
