Return Information Notice - Code AM

We revised the amount of withholding claimed on your return. The paragraph below explains why. We based the amount of withholding allowed on your Forms W-2 or CA Schedule W-2, Forms 1099, and other withholding documents. We also may have received information from other tax agencies or your employers. Please note, you cannot claim the following Form W-2 or CA Schedule W-2 items as California income tax withholding:

  • State Disability Insurance (CASDI, SDI VPDI).
  • Local tax withheld.
  • Any income tax withheld for another state.

We could not verify your withholding through your employer.

Why did I receive this notice code?

We were unable to verify the withholding on your tax return with your employer. Therefore, we disallowed the amount of withholding.

What do I need to do?

Compare your tax return to your Form W-2 and make sure the amounts are correct. Contact your employer to verify these amounts. State withholding is in box 17.

If you agree with the revision, you do not need to contact us. Please update your records. If a revised balance due exists, please pay the amount due.

If you do not agree, please contact us.
