Return Information Notice - Code EA

We revised your Personal Exemption Credit to the correct amount.

Why did I receive this notice code?

There was an error in the amount of Personal Exemption Credits claimed on your California state income tax return. We have corrected this error to allow the maximum personal credits for your filing status.

If the correct numbers were entered for lines 7-10, you may have made a math error in calculating your personal exemption credits.

Filing Status Personal Credit Step Line
3—Married Filing Separately
4—Head of Household
1 3 7
2—Married Filing Joint
5—Qualifying Widow/Widower
2 3 7
