Return Information Notice - Code CG

We revised your California Child and Dependent Care Expense Credit because the amount of federal Child and Dependent Care Expense Credit you entered on your return exceeded the maximum allowable amount based on the number of qualifying persons you entered on your return.

Why did I receive this notice code?

California's credit is a percentage of the federal credit. The amount of federal credit you entered on your California return was more than:

Tax Year If you had one qualifying individual If you had two or more qualifying individuals
2002 and Prior $720 $1,440
2003 and after $1,050 $2,100

You entered a federal credit amount that was more than the maximum credit allowable. As a result, we recomputed your California credit using the maximum amount of federal credit for the number of qualifying individuals you entered on your return.

What do I need to do?

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

If you do not agree with our revisions send us a copy (or corrected copy) of your California Child and Dependent Care Expenses Credit Form FTB 3506.

Note: if this is for tax year 2000, send us a corrected copy of your federal form 2441, Child and Dependent Care Expenses, or federal Schedule 2, Child and Dependent Care Expenses for Form 1040A Filers.

If you still disagree or do not understand our adjustments, please contact us.
