FTB Notices Delayed
We begin our notice delay process, which affects e-file and paper Statement of Tax Due (STD) notices, as well as e-file Return Information Notices (RIN), for the 2011 tax year, according to the following schedule:
- E-File STDs were held from January 1, 2012, through May 25, 2012.
- Paper STDs and e-file RINs were held from March 16, 2012, through May 25, 2012.
We began releasing notices on May 25, 2012. The release will be throttled at 40,000 notices a night, totaling 200,000 per week. We implemented this delay process in 2008 after taxpayers received notices that caused confusion over whether we received a timely payment and caused taxpayers to call their representatives during the busy filing season.
