CSB News is reporting that tax payers that filed late for the 2019 and 2020 tax years, due to the pandemic, were initially charged a late filing fee. That fee might be coming back to you before October and you don't even have to do anything. Aside from keeping your eye out for the money, which is an average of $750 per eligible person.

The IRS is refunding $1.2 billion in penalties to help individuals and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Most people that filed 2019 and 2020 late will see the refund. If you still haven't filed, you might be in luck as well.
