Online mail


(Male driver - contemplative voiceover)
I wonder if my tax refund will be in the mail today. I need to drop off the kids at soccer and dance, check for my tax refund, stop at the grocery store, and get the car tuned up.

(Male driver - outside voice to himself)
I sure could use that refund.

(Stick figure dad)
Wow, someone's thinking about their tax refund!

(Stick figure mom)
You know, he wouldn't have to worry so much if he signed up for online mail through My Account on the CRA website.

(Stick figure dad)
You're right! He would have received an email letting him know to check his account and see his notice of assessment.

(Stick figure mom)
I hope he's signed up for Direct Deposit because if he has, he'll know that his refund will be in his bank account the same day…

(Stick figure dog - dog barks)

(Stick figure mom)
… instead of waiting at his mailbox for his cheque to arrive.

(Stick figure son - surprised)
Really?  He should sign up for Direct Deposit!

(Stick figure dad)
This is great! No more worrying about where his notice of assessment is; it's in My Account.

(Stick figure daughter)
Hey, cool!

(Sfx swoosh of camera move and ambient traffic sound)

(Stick figure boy)
Yeah – he should sign up for My Account and online mail today – that way he can think about other things.

(Stick figure dog - dog barks)

(Stick figure dad)
That does it!  We're signing up for online mail too!

(Stick figure girl)
Helloo… we're a stick-figure family. We don't pay taxes.

(Stick figure dad/mom)
Hmm … that's true. She's right.

(Brief awkward silence of family)
