Return Information Notice - Code OV

The amount of Voluntary Contributions reported on your original return did not match the amount shown on your amended return. Voluntary Contributions cannot be changed with an 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 voluntary contributions you entered on your amended return (Form 540X, line 30) was different than the amount of voluntary contributions you entered on your original return. We may have previously adjusted the amount on your original return.

You can make voluntary contributions only on your original return. You cannot make them or reverse them on an amended return. Therefore the amount on your Form 540X must match the amount from the original 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.
