FTB pursuing old tax debts?

December 19, 2016 • Michael Raguse • Log In to Post Comments

Has anyone else had clients receive notices from the FTB to collect really old tax debts?  I have a client who just received a notice for tax years 1995 and 2000.  He's been current filing his CA taxes for the past 6 years, so I don't understand why they waited this long to pursue him.  Does the FTB have a program that searches for debts about to expire?


Yes this is quite common these days. The FTB upgraded their system and can now find old debts that were no longer showing up. Often these are federal audits where the t/p never reported the change to CA. You can call the FTB (number on the notice) and find out the general reason although they won't have a copy of the details,

Thanks Lynn!  Merry Christmas!
