Did you receive a refund you were not expecting?

We incorrectly issued some refunds of amounts taxpayers paid with their returns. The refunds are small, averaging less than $5. If you feel we sent you a refund in error, you can return it to FTB as follows:


  • Taxpayers who have not cashed their State refund check can return it to FTB within 15 days to:

Franchise Tax Board
PO Box 942840
Sacramento CA 94240-0040

  • Taxpayers who have cashed their refund checks can return the funds either by using Web Pay, OR by mailing a check to:

Franchise Tax Board
PO Box 942867
Sacramento CA 94267-0001
