A tax RETURN is a document you send to the government.That's the title of the form. In big letters. At the top.If you have overpaid your taxes, and get money back, that is a REFUND.Preach it, brother!In my office, it goes something like this:Client: I haven't got my return yet.Peter: I finished your return last week.Client: Yes, but I haven't got my return yet.Peter: I gave you a copy when I finished it.C: OK. But I don't have my return.P: Do you need another copy?C: I need my money.P: I see. You haven't got the refund.C: Yes, that's what I said. I don't have my return yet.P: (Attempts to strangle the client through the phone while still sounding pleasant.) It takes the IRS about 4 weeks to mail your refund check.C: Can I have them directly deposit the return?P: (Looks for knife to slit wrists. Secretary has wisely hidden them all by now.) I asked if you wanted a direct deposit when we did your return. It's too late to get a direct deposit now.C: Ok. Can California do a direct deposit of my return?P: (Jumps out the window. Unfortunately, he's on the first floor and only manages a few scratches on the bushes outside the window.)--Peter
