Tax refund question


New poster so please be gentle

I relocated to Zurich in Mid November 2011 on a renewable contract (puts me on an L permit if that is relevant), paying withholding tax.

In November 2012 I received a reminder asking me to submit my tax return for 2011. I (or rather a German speaking friend) rang them up and explained that I had never received a return to complete and they sent me a duplicate form.

I completed all the forms and returned them at the start of December (sent recorded delivery, so I know they received them) and have heard nothing from them since.

The annual salary statement that I had from my employer showed that in the 2.5 months I paid around 5000fr withholding tax and when I checked the federal and cantonal tax rates at the back of the booklet they sent with the return, it looks like my tax liability should be only around 500fr.

My question is should I be entitled to a refund of the overpaid tax and if so how long does it normally take for them to process?
