Albany -- It's tax season, and many tax service offices are even busier than usual.

More people are filing early in order to get a tax rebate check that's part of the economic stimulus package Congress recently passed.

The IRS announced many refund checks might be delayed this year. And many companies didn't send out W-2's as early as they have in the past. But that hasn't stopped people from filing especially those anticipating a refund.

"The beginning of the tax year is when we see most of the people who are interested in the advances and refund anticipation loans. Usually people who are coming after Christmas and need to pay bills," said Stan Suit of Advanced Tax.

You must file a return to get a stimulus rebate check. This includes people on social security or disability who normally don't file returns.
