What You Need with California's FTB 6830
It is crucial to understand that you have the right to contest or protest the proposed assessment within a period of 60 days from the date of the notice. This means you have the opportunity to present your case, provide relevant evidence, and explain your position to challenge the assessment. This can ensure fair and accurate taxation.
Deciding to protest actively communicates and upholds your audit-related position. Initiating this process expresses disagreement, concerns, and desire for accurate reevaluation. It ensures changes or added tax responsibilities are based on accurate information.
This process can be done thru:
- Online protest (MyFTB Account)
- Written protest sent thru mail or fax
During a protest, you have the right to have representation by someone, such as an accountant or a tax lawyer, at any time. It is important to be aware of the taxpayer’s rights in such situations.
The FTB will notify you whenever they receive your protest and provide you with the results following it. If you still disagree with their final decision, you can file an appeal with the Office of Tax Appeals.
Remember that prompt action is key. Failing to respond within the assigned timeframe may result in the assessment becoming final, leaving you with limited options.
Protect your rights as a taxpayer and ensure that you accurately determine your tax liabilities and follow the laws of California. Need help with California’s FTB 6830? Contact Priority Tax Relief now.
