PURPOSE OF BULLETIN

To inform staff what to do if they receive phone calls from taxpayers who received small refunds with no explanation for a 2007 balance due that they recently paid.

BACKGROUND

We are receiving calls from taxpayers who received a total or partial refund of payments sent to us to cover their 2007 balance due. A programming error caused our processing system to incorrectly issue refunds on low balance due amounts.

PROCEDURES

If you receive calls from taxpayers who match this criteria, follow the steps below:

  • Explain that we incorrectly refunded the money
  • Advise the taxpayer to return the check within 15 days to:

Franchise Tax Board
PO Box 942840
Sacramento, CA 94240-0040

If the taxpayer states the refund check has been cashed, advise them to send another payment for the balance due within 15 days using one of the following methods:

Franchise Tax Board
PO Box 942867
Sacramento, CA 94267-0001
