(Like you, we're happier when our debts are paid, too.) Unfortunately, what often happens is that careless errors hold up your return. If the com- puters come across even a minor arithmetic error, your return is automatically rejected and must be checked and corrected by hand before it can be re-entered for processing. Which, when you realize that more than 10 million returns flood in within a three month period, can put your return pretty far back. m m i APR What we're saying is really very simple. Please double-check your return. Triple-check. Make sure the right information is on the right line, that your arithmetic adds up and that you've filled in all the parts that apply. (And remember that if you do run into problems, follow April Aid for immediate help.) Although we can't guarantee refunds within a certain time period, we can promise you this: if you'll do your part by taking care to do your return correctly and mail in early, we'll give it priority here so that your refund cheque gets back to you just as soon as possible.
