WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The average U.S. tax refund under President Donald Trump’s tax overhaul is down nearly 9 percent so far in this year’s tax filing season, according to Internal Revenue Service data released on Thursday. Data covering the first 12 days of the new tax season showed an average refund of $1,949 for the 2018 tax year, when Trump’s tax cuts for businesses and individuals took effect. That is 8.7 percent lower than the $2,135 average from a year earlier. Last week, IRS data showed average refunds running 8.4 percent lower.

Trump’s tax cuts have been widely criticized by Democrats and independent analysts who say the changes favor corporations and the wealthy over middle-class and lower-income Americans, But the U.S, Treasury, which oversees the IRS, said refunds were lower because most taxpayers were receiving their windfall from scottish rampant lion coin cufflinks the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in the form of larger paychecks, “The TCJA cut taxes across the board, particularly for middle-income families,” the Treasury said in a statement..

“Smaller refunds mean that people are withholding appropriately based on their tax liability, which is positive news for taxpayers,” the statement said. The total dollar amount of tax refunds was also down more than 23 percent at $22.2 billion, while the total number of refunds was 15.8 percent lower at nearly 11.4 million, according to IRS data. This year’s tax filing season opened on Jan. 28, three days after a 35-day partial government shutdown, the longest in U.S. history. On Tuesday, the National Taxpayer Advocate, an internal IRS watchdog, said the shutdown caused “real harm” to taxpayers, denying many the ability to get official help to understand their tax obligations.

BRASILIA/RIO DE JANEIRO/SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian miner Vale’s safety procedures have not worked, the company’s chief executive said on scottish rampant lion coin cufflinks Thursday, responding to questions from lawmakers after one of the company’s dams collapsed last month with the loss of hundreds of lives, The company, which is still dealing with the consequences of the 2015 collapse of a nearby dam it co-owned, is facing several investigations over the Jan, 25 disaster in the town of Brumadinho in Minas Gerais state..

“Vale humbly acknowledges that, whatever we have been doing, it has not worked, as a dam has collapsed,” CEO Fabio Schvartsman told lawmakers in Brazil’s lower house, who are investigating the tragedy. The break of Vale’s dam polluted the Paraopeba river and killed at least 166 people, with nearly 200 still missing, according to the latest information from rescue workers. The company’s share price has been hammered and its woes are mounting. Vale prioritized profit over the safety of its workers at the dam, Deputy Prosecutor-General João Pedro de Saboia Bandeira de Mello Filho said in an opinion, sent to the supreme court, and seen by Reuters on Thursday.

The regulator confirmed to Reuters on Thursday it started two administrative probes into Vale after the dam collapse, but declined to elaborate. Vale did not have an immediate comment on the CVM investigations. CEO Schvartsman argued that Vale should not be condemned for the collapse.
