The IRS has been sending out refund checks to people filing their returns during an extended tax season – and for some residents, these refund checks could be much larger than their economic impact payments.

More than 111 million households are expected to receive a refund from the IRS this year, according to a report from financial data website MagnifyMoney.

The IRS had processed more than 106.6 million returns as of April 23, including the distribution of 81.3 million refunds. The average refund amount, according to the tax agency, is $2,818.

Economic impact payments are $1,200 for individuals and $2,400 for married couples.
