2020 Tax Return PaymentsDecember 2021 Tax News

FTB recently became aware of an issue that affected 2020 tax year returns

We are working to identify and correct the affected accounts; however, some notices may be sent out before we can apply the correction.

FTB recently became aware of an issue that affected 2020 tax year returns that:

    • Included an extension payment made after April 15, but on or before May 17, or
    • Included a request to transfer an overpayment to the 2021 tax year

Due to the COVID pandemic, the filing due date was delayed to May 17, 2021. This change in date affected extension payments, and requests to transfer an overpayment, that were made after the normal filing due date of April 15, but on or before May 17. The extension payments and requests to transfer an overpayment were not recognized as current year payments or requests to transfer.

We are working to identify and correct the affected accounts; however, some notices may be sent out before we can apply the correction.

Although, no further action is required from the taxpayer, you may verify the correction was made through your MyFTB account, or by calling in to speak with an agent by calling on our Tax Practitioner Hotline at 916-845-7057.
