(NBC) -

Tax filing season has officially begun.

The Internal Revenue Service will begin accepting paper and electronic 2014 tax returns starting Tuesday. 

That's 11 days earlier than last year.

As for refunds, the IRS said most refunds will be delivered in 21 days if filed electronically.

If you file a paper federal tax return, you'll have to wait a little longer. 

Due to budget cuts, the IRS has warned of delays in paper filings of at least one week. 

The average refund is expected to be about $2,800.
