Return Information Notice - Code OT

The amount of taxable income 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 taxable income you entered on your amended return (Form 540X, line 6A) did not match the amount of taxable income from your original return. The following may create a difference between your estimated tax payment records and ours:

  • We may have previously adjusted the amount from your original return.
  • We may have examined your original return, which resulted in additional assessments.
  • You made a calculation error on Form 540X, lines 1-5 column A.
  • You previously amended your tax return.

What do I need to do?

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

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

If you do not agree, please contact us.
