Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You need to contact CA FTB as soon as possible and find out. It could be a mistake (somebody reported income using your security number my mistake), fraud (somebody is working illegally using your SS#) or identity theft (somebody filed IRS return with your social security number and claim residency in CA). If the FTB doesn't want to listen to you, contact Taxpayer advocate services.
Do not ignore it because CA FTB can garnish your federal refund.
Yes. If income was reported to FTB but no return had been filed there's no statute of limitation, they can go back 25 year or more. Once tax is assessed, FTB has 10 years to collect. You need to call them to stop the collection process.
It is not me, it is the website administration. I am just a user like you and don't get paid until you accept my answer. I don't have any control over the billing. I can notify the customer service, they can explain what is it for.
