Notice of Tax Return Change mailing delayed May 2021 Tax News

This is the time of year when we usually remind you that our Notice of Tax Return Change - Revised Balance (FTB 5818-B) will start going out the last week of May. These notices correct an error(s) made on a 2020 tax return and may result in your clients contacting you. Under normal circumstances, we mail these notices after we process all incoming returns and payments.

The filing and payment due date for the 2020 tax year has been postponed this year to May 17, 2021 for personal income taxpayers. As a result, we will delay these notices accordingly. We anticipate these mailings to begin the first week of July.

Use our website and search, "notices for information" to learn more about this and other FTB notices. Additionally, if you are an authorized representative, you can view your client's notice in MyFTB:

  • For your POA clients, use the Client Notices page from your Tax Professional account.
  • For your TIA clients, go to your client's MyFTB account and select Notices & Correspondence from the Communications dropdown menu.
