Return Information Notice - Code RU

We applied your Renter's Credit to reduce your total tax to $0.00. Renter's Credit is not a refundable credit.

Why did I receive this notice code?

When you subtracted your Non-refundable renters credit from your tax liability you entered a negative amount. This amount cannot be less than zero. The Nonrefundable Renter's Credit is a personal income tax credit that can only offset your net tax liability; therefore, you must have a tax liability to claim the credit.

What do I need to do?

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

If you do not agree, please contact us.
