In May, our new nonfiler system, the Integrated Nonfiler Compliance (INC) system will begin issuing Request for Tax Return notices to individuals who have been identified as nonfilers for the 1999 tax year.

What is INC?
The current filing enforcement (FE or Nonfiler) system is made up of two separate systems: personal income tax (PIT FE) and corporation tax (CFE). INC combines these into one system. 

INC is a more versatile and efficient nonfiler system because it improves the way we use the information we receive from banks, financial institutions, the Internal Revenue Service and other information reporters. 

INC enables us to use more of the information we receive and more accurately link income information with the correct taxpayer.

The new system will include many features, some of which are:

Tailored request letters and notice of proposed assessments.
Our notices have a new look. They are developed to clearly explain the specific reason why we are contacting the taxpayer and the date a reply is due.

E government services for nonfilers. Taxpayers can go to our website at www.ftb.ca.gov and download forms, obtain additional time to file or reply to a notice, obtain additional information on why a return is required, or tell us if a return has already been filed.

Visit our website (www.ftb.ca.gov) and read Tax News (both in print and online) for news and updates about INC.
