ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ Tax refund season has begun in New York. 

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance said Monday it sent out its first 87 refunds for the 2013 tax year. The average refund was $183 and the highest was $1,356.

The refunds went to early filers who used New York's so-called Income Tax Web File, which allows returns to be prepared and electronically filed earlier than before.
