Refund instead of tax owed

Hello, we filed tax and owed state (CA) tax.  To our surprise, we received a refund check.  Can anyone share their similar experience and/or advice... before I call the franchise tax board.  Thx!

1) the return was wrong, or

2) the FTB is wrong.

Review the notice, as well as check your records to see if payments *match*.

Thanks.. the choices are rhetorical and obvious i suppose.  We filed with tt and it says we owed tax.  There's no notice to review.  We only received a refund check unexpectedly.

I was hoping someone out there would chime in if it happened to them.  I only (obvious) choice is to call the tax man to have them investigated.

You are not on a TurboTax forum. You are Lost. The people on the TT community might be of more help. That's why I provided the Link. Go here:

And ask the TurboTax people about this issue.

"and/or advice"

Yesterday would have been a good day to buy a lottery ticket?
