US taxpayers hit by the blow The first week of submission ended on February 1, although the Tax Cuts and Job Act 2017 presumably meant lower taxes for the working class in 2018.
Some of them were directly directed against President Donald Trump in their complaints when the Internal Revenue Service published The figures for Friday, which show the average reimbursement amount in the first filing week for 2019, had dropped in comparison to the same time in 2018 ,

A Twitter user posted on Saturday: & # 39; #taxrefund last year … 8000 dollars … this year … 900 dollars. Wow, thank you @realldonaldtrump, for the least amount of time it has been 6 years that your tax relief tax will do wonders. "
" Although I adjusted my reluctance, I received a #taxrefund last year and owed $ 1700 this year! Same job, house and situation. @realdonaldtrump, explain that! & # 39; One person tweeted.
& # 39; My taxes have been completed. I submit the same thing every year and claim nothing. Get back a fraction of 2017. Apparently I read everything wrong. Should have been called "Tax Refund Cuts", then my returns are shitty !! Thanks, @realdonaldtrump, "wrote another.
Some even claimed to turn against POTUS after voting for him in the 2016 elections. A social media posting "After you tricked me … I will not vote for you … good luck in 2020."
A tweeter said Trump "good luck in 2020" after he said that he would not vote for him again
Some say they owe the IRS despite apparent change in the financial situation
Many were puzzled that their reimbursements were very different despite all the changes.
As the tax code promises tax breaks in 2017 and promises lower taxes for the middle class, employers could adjust the amount of deduction paid by employees. Employees received more money during the year and received a slightly lower refund.
It is possible that some employers took too little of the paycheck, but the employee did not notice and did not intend to receive a lower refund than in previous years.  Others showed no sympathy for those with lower reimbursements. They suggested that taxpayers should adjust their deductions even lower.
& # 39; So many tweets about tax refunds. I have not received any refund for years. A tax refund means that you OFFICIALS can pay the government. more income tax than was required. In addition, the IRS may in certain cases make a refund. Never pay more to the government than necessary. & # 39;

By 2019, the government had reimbursed a whopping 30 percent less than its first week in 2018, with only $ 8.713 billion declining this year compared to the previous $ 12.560 billion.
However, the IRS found that 16,035,000 returns were received in week 1 and only 13,306,000 were settled. In comparison, 18302,000 were filed in the same week in 2018 and 17,931,000 in progress.
After the partial government deadlock, processing rates had slowed dramatically by 26 percent, and with the IRS warning of the delay last month, the number of returns submitted in the first week fell 12.4 percent.
Even the number of visits to IRS.gov had fallen by 10.9 percent; In the week ending February 1, only 66,310,000 visits were recorded, compared to 74,401,000 a week ago.
Others showed no sympathy for those with lower reimbursements who voted for Donald Trump in 2016

A social media user predicted that it would only get worse for the middle class, called "fraud."
