Purpose of Bulletin
To inform staff that Senate Bill (SB) 836, chapter 31, Statutes 2016, made several changes to the Government Code including the name change of The California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board to the California Victim Compensation Board.
This change shifted the governmental claims duties to the Department of General Services (except for claims for reissuance of stale dated or replacement warrants).
SB 836 allows the originating agency to accept direct claims for stale dated or replacement warrants without a claim fee. SB 836 also changes the authority to discharge a state entity from accountability for the collection of debt from the California Victim Compensation Board to the State Controller, and renumbered the statutes to Government Code Sections 12433 through 12439.
Prior to June 27, 2016, the law provided that taxpayers who sought replacement of stale dated warrants (uncashed warrants older than 3 years from date of issuance) must make a government claim to the Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board and pay a $25 fee.
When a taxpayer requests a reissuance of a stale dated, or replacement warrant, ask the taxpayer to return the original warrant to the following address:
RETURNED WARRANT DESK MS F283
FRANCHISE TAX BOARD
PO BOX 942867
SACRAMENTO CA 94267-0001
Taxpayers may contact the Franchise Tax Board at 1.800.852.5711 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except state holidays.
