If you filed your tax return early this year, you'll have to wait a week longer for your refund.
According to an IRS spokesman, the delay was caused by new safeguards installed in IRS computer systems to prevent refund fraud. The problem is limited to taxpayers who filed their returns before January 26.
Returns that were accepted on or after that date will not be affected.
