A A ) '-(j O s"' /-J Imperfect return attracts special IRS attention The surest way to get special attention from the Internal Rev enue Service is to file an "imperfect" return. However, this special attenUon has no bene fits; just more delay and additional cost for everyone. This tax advice from R. A. Biddell, District Director of the Internal Revenue. He pointed out 6 common items that delay the processing of returns. They are: (1) failure to attach W-2 forms, (2) no signatures, (3) tax information not readable, (4) failure to list dependents and exemptions, (5) failure to total deductions, and (6) failure to list Social Security number. What happens when the taxpayer forgets one'of the above: Mr. Riddell said the return must he specially processed and any refund will be delayed. If the taxpayer calls or writes about his refund, this inquiry takes clerical help away from the processing of correctly prepared returns. Thus, all returns are slowed up. Review your return very carefully when it is completed, Mr. Riddell advised. Put it aside overnight, then review it again the next day. After ycu are sure it is clear, complete, and correct, mail it to District Director of Internal Revenue, Los Angeles, CaUfomia, 90012.
