    • Issues or adjustments that occur when the return is processed by the department.
    • Refund information, such as the date and amount of any refund and if there was an offset. (It doesn’t include collection details such as the amount of any offset and which debt was paid.)

    • Preparers may also receive copies of department correspondence relating to the return being processed, such as letters requesting more information.
