State of California Franchise Tax Board

Return Information Notice - Code AN

We revised the amount of withholding claimed on your return. The paragraph below explains why. We based the amount of withholding allowed on your Forms W-2 or CA Schedule W-2, Forms 1099, and other withholding documents. We also may have received information from other tax agencies or your employers. Please note, you cannot claim the following Form W-2 or CA Schedule W-2 items as California income tax withholding:

  • State Disability Insurance (CASDI, SDI VPDI).
  • Local tax withheld.
  • Any income tax withheld for another state.

You claimed withholding from a state other than California.

Why did I receive this notice code?

We did not allow the amount of withholding you entered on your return. The withholding you entered was for another state. We do not allow a claim for tax withheld for another state.

What do I need to do?

Review your Form W-2, box 17 and make sure the state is CA. If it shows another state, please contact that state to see how to get a refund of your withholding.

If you agree with the revision, you do not need to contact us. Please update your records. If a revised balance due exists, please pay the amount due.

If you do not agree, please contact us.
