Return Information Notice - Code WS

We revised the amount of real estate or nonresident withholding based on:

  • The amount substantiated by FTB Forms 592-B or 593 attached to your return.
  • The amount of available credit we were able to verify.
Why did I receive this notice code?
We could not verify the amount for real estate, nonresident, or entertainment withholding.
What do I need to do?
Check your tax return; compare the amounts and identification numbers from your withholding documents. Get information about California's real estate, partnership, nonresident distributions (including Independent Contractors), or entertainment withholding requirements.
