The Washington Post has named its new West Africa bureau chief: the amazing Danielle Paquette! Huge congrats to one of the best reporters I know. She will be greatly missed on the jobs/biz/robot beat.

And yes, most financial experts tell you refunds are bad. You are basically loaning the government money for awhile if you get a refund. But the reality is 75% of Americans have received a refund in recent years. Right or wrong, people have come to expect them.

Right or wrong, 75% of American tax filers have received refunds in recent years. Many people have come to rely on a big refund this time of year to make their budget work.

NEW: The average tax refund is down nearly 9% so far this year. Senior Treasury officials confirmed Thursday that fewer Americans will get a tax refund this year and that the average refund will almost certainly be lower.
