Purpose of Bulletin

To inform staff beginning January 17, 2013, the Withhold at Source and Compliance Section (WSCS) will automate Withholding Information Notices (WINs).


WSCS administers the nonwage withholding program, which includes real estate, resident, nonresident, and backup withholding.

On August 29, 2011, WSCS implemented the new automated Withhold at Source System (WASS) to process withholding forms and payments.  WASS is a comprehensive system that interfaces with TI and BETS.


Beginning January 17, 2013, WSCS will send WINs to taxpayers that submit FTB Forms 592, 592F, or 593, resulting in a discrepancy. The WINs will include a description of the discrepancy.

If the discrepancy results in an overpayment, the taxpayer should follow the instructions on the WIN to resolve it.

If the discrepancy results in a balance due, we will mail a separate bill. Individual taxpayers and estates and trusts will receive a Statement of Tax Due (STD). Business entities will receive a Notice of Tax Due (NTD). The taxpayer should follow the instructions on the STD or NTD to make a payment.
