FTB to mail request for tax returns on real estate withholding cases

PURPOSE OF BULLETIN

To inform staff that we will mail approximately 9,000 requests for tax returns to nonfilers who have real estate withholding credits for 2004 and 2005 tax years. Mailings will begin April 17, 2008, and will be completed by May 22, 2008.

BACKGROUND

The Withholding Services and Compliance Section has initiated a project to contact nonfilers with real estate withholding credits and request a tax return be filed.

WHAT THE NONFILER NEEDS TO DO

The nonfiler must do one of the following:

  • File the returns, or
  • Show that they do not have a filing requirement

If the nonfiler does not respond to our request for a return within 45 days, we will issue a Notice of Proposed Assessment.
