Head of household audit questionnaires coming in July

The 2007 head of household (HOH) season begins in July with the first mailing of audit questionnaires. This year we expect to mail approximately 130,000 HOH Audit letters for the 2007 tax year.

Taxpayers who receive a 2007 HOH Audit letter can complete the questionnaire by:

  • Going to our website at ftb.ca.gov and searching for HOH web to find the HOH Audit Letter Web Response page. They will need their Social Security number and the FTB ID number listed at the top of the questionnaire letter.
  • Faxing pages 3 and 4, and any supporting information to 866.223.8195.
  • Mailing the questionnaire using the enclosed, pre-addressed envelope.

Taxpayers who do not respond to the questionnaire, or whose responses indicate that they do not qualify for HOH, can expect a Notice of Proposed Assessment (NPA) that disallows their HOH filing status. If you have clients who receive an audit letter, advise them to respond by the letter’s due date to avoid a failure to furnish information penalty.

You can obtain more information about the HOH filing status by visiting our HOH webpage.
