Return Information Notice - Code OF

The amount of refund received reported on your original return did not match the amount shown on your amended return. Please review both your original return and your amended return for the corrected amounts.

Why did I receive this notice code?

The amount of overpaid tax you entered on your amended return, (Form 540x, line 27) does not match the amount of refund from your original return. This caused a revision to your amended tax return. The following may create a difference between your original refund, or overpaid tax records and ours:

  • We may have previously adjusted the amount from your original refund.
  • You did not include the amount of overpayment applied to another year.
  • You had additional overpaid tax as a result of an examination of your original return.

What do I need to do?

Compare your original return and any notices received regarding your original return, with your amended return to find the reason for the difference.

If you agree with the revisions you do not need to contact us. Please update your records.

If you do not agree, please contact us.
