Some taxpayers having to wait longer to get refunds

Tax preparers say taxpayers continue to wait longer than usual for their refunds.

A recent problem with the IRS' "Where's My Refund" tool has even caused many to fear their return hadn't been filed.

In years past, most electronically filing taxpayers have received their refund in one to two weeks, but this year, it's been taking ten to 21 days.

The IRS has blamed the delays on new safeguards installed in its computers to prevent refund fraud.
