State of California Franchise Tax Board

Why didn't you give me credit for my withholding?


The Franchise Tax Board gave you full credit for the withholding that is verified by your Form W-2. You may not have received credit for your withholding because of a missing or unclear Form W-2. You may not claim federal tax, local tax, SDI or taxes paid to another state as California withholding.

To determine if the amount claimed on your return is correct, add the amount of California withholding on all your Forms W-2. If this is more than the amount we allowed, send us clear copies of your Forms W-2, with a copy of your notice and we will reconsider your credit. Mail your correspondence and Forms W-2 to:
