"As I receive my usual weekly 'Delayed Return' list of one taxpayer, I ponder: Is this just computer generated data that no ATO human ever sees or, as I strive to believe, is it also a reminder to the relevant area [in the ATO] that another week has passed and still no resolution? Is there some pre-determined point in time when the 'Delayed Return(s)' will receive priority?

I would love to know the answers."
