Democrats see early statistics showing declining refunds this tax filing season as an opportunity to attack the 2017 Republican tax overhaul as a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class.

The tax cuts lowered the amount withheld from each paycheck for most taxpayers, cutting their taxes but also raising the possibility that, when they file their taxes, their refund will be smaller.

The article goes on to state the following:

Internal Revenue Service statistics show that the number of tax refunds has fallen 25 percent as of Feb. 2 and that the average size of refund has fallen 8.5 percent. It’s not clear yet whether that trend will hold for the entire filing season, which extends until mid-April.

Republicans had a different view. See examples below.
