It's tax season. And the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act passed by President Trump and a Republican-led Congress is finally in full effect.

Many Americans will look to their refund to see if they got a tax cut. This legislation is seen as highly partisan but the biggest impact individual taxpayers see may come from a nonpartisan government agency, the IRS.  This tax law changed many Americans' tax brackets and so the IRS changed witholding --or how much money is taken from every paycheck. So if you did get a tax cut, you probably already saw it in a bigger paychecks and come this April, that fat refund check might be a little slimmer.
