FRANCHISE TAX BOARD (FTB) INTERCEPTION NOTICES HAVE BEEN MAILED
Notice: Franchise Tax Board (FTB) Interception Notices will be sent in October. Affected students will be given 30 days from the notice date to resolve or dispute the debts before the university reports the debt to the FTB for intercept collection efforts to begin.
How old are charges eligible for FTB Interception?
Outstanding obligations prior to May 1st. will be reported to the Franchise Tax Board (FTB)
Why does the campus go through this process?
The university is required to report the outstanding obligations to the State of California. If SF State students carry any obligations that are dated May 1st. and older, remain outstanding through the date of the notice, and are expecting a State Tax Refund, the FTB will intercept (claim) that tax refund amount and apply it towards the outstanding obligations. This will continue each year until debt is paid in full. If state tax refund amounts are greater than outstanding obligations, the unused portion of the student's tax refund will be returned by the campus; not the FTB.
