IRS Remind To Review Individual Tax Returns For Common Errors That Could Delay Refunds

On April 14, IRS issued a reminder to taxpayers stressing the importance of reviewing their federal individual income tax returns for common errors that could delay refunds. (IR 2011-45) The agency listed a number of ways to avoid such errors, including the following: file electronically; remember the Making Work Pay credit; mail a paper return to the correct address; check only one filing status; double-check all figures; provide the right routing and account numbers when requesting a direct deposit of a refund; sign and date the return or, if e-filing, use a self-selected personal identification number; if filing a paper return, attach forms to the front of the return; and if you owe money, look at the e-payment options or send a check or money order payable to the “United States Treasury.” Additional information can be found at,,id=238479,00.html.
