IRS: Tax returns averaging near 3K

The deadline for filing your income tax returns is next week.



The IRS says 67 percent of taxpayers have already filed as of last week. Most of them are receiving refunds, averaging more than $2,800.



The IRS says if you can't pay what you owe, file anyway so you won't be penalized for not filing by the April 15 due date.



You can also file for a six-month extension.
