Default get the ca franchise tax board thugs to refund the $600 they stole from me

Every time I move from CA, the state tax people claim I am still living in CA. This time they "intercepted" funds that was owed to me from unclaimed property.

"Every time I move from CA" is part of the problem. If you move back frequently, California is going to continue to claim you still have a domicile in the state. Since you believe differently and haven't filed, they file for you. CA is treating your absences as temporary and that you are still a resident for tax purposes.

You need to work with an experienced Enrolled Agent to figure out if you have in fact abandoned your domicile and the best way to document this.

actually Calif. considers you a resident no matter where you live if you were at one time a resident
when you leave Calif. and file the next year, you need to file the 540 NR to establish when you left the state

And failing to fill out and file CA tax returns can be very costly to you when the FTB does get involved with this matter at some time in your life.
And now you do need to try and deal with them about your own problem that you do have at this time and for this purpose.
Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 06/20/2014

File a correct Non resident California State Income Tax Return 540-NR even if you are not legally required to do so. Attach a copy of your federal return to it.

You don't provide enough specifics for an answer. I suspect the problem is you fouling up your state tax returns (or failing to file them). But just how many times have you moved from CA?
