TORONTO, March 4 /CNW/ - Cinram International Income Fund (TSX: CRW.UN) (the "Fund") announced that it was advised last evening by KPMG LLP ("KPMG"), the Fund's auditor and tax advisors, that in their view an error was made in certain of the Fund's previously filed tax returns for 2008 and prior years.
