Return Information Notice - Code OW

The amount of California withholding reported on your original return did not match the amount shown on your amended return. Please review both your original return and your amended return for the corrected amounts.

Why did I receive this notice code?

The amount of California withholding you entered on your amended tax return (Form 540X, line 17, column A) did not match the amount of allowed California withholding on your original return. We may have previously adjusted or disallowed the amount you reported on your original return.

What do I need to do?

Compare your original return and any notices we sent regarding your original return with your amended return to find the reason for the difference.

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