Current Electronic Commerce Programs:

  •  Our individual e-file program allows our customers to electronically file personal income tax returns year round using 3rd party software. Most taxpayers can e-file their personal income tax return, including those filing nonresident or part-year resident returns. Taxpayers can even submit an Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) request with the e-filed return for payment of taxes due or as an estimate payment. 
  •  Business e-file program allows customers to electronically file business entity tax returns year round using 3rd party software for Corporations, Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies (LLC), and Exempt Organizations filing forms 100, 100S, 100W, 565, 568, and 199, plus certain accompanying forms and schedules. We also accept superseded and amended returns for Partnerships and LLCs filing forms 565 and 568. Customers may also submit an EFW request with the e-filed return for payment of taxes due or as an estimate payment. 
  •  Fiduciary e-file program, launched in 2014, allows customers to electronically file FTB 541, California Fiduciary Income Tax Return and certain accompanying forms and schedules year round using 3rd party software.  Customers may also submit an EFW request with the e-filed return for payment of taxes due or as an estimate payment.
  • CalFile program is a free and direct way to file your current year personal income tax return. Go to ftb.ca.gov and search calfile.
  • California e-Postcard (FTB 199N) allows tax-exempt organizations (other than churches and church-related organizations), that normally have annual gross receipts of $25,000 or less to electronically file their 199N California e-Postcard with FTB.
  • Paperless Schedules K-1 Program is an effective and resourceful way to submit and process Schedule K-1s 565 and 568. Through this program, partnerships, LLCs, or their representatives may file hundreds of Schedule K-1s by CD or portable USB/flash drive instead of sending paper.
  • Stand-Alone Electronic Payment Process - Beginning January 2017, taxpayers and tax practitioners have the ability to submit an EFW request for extension and estimate payments using tax preparation software.  These payment requests will be accepted as “stand-alone,” and can be submitted separately from the e-file return.  The return can be filed at a later date.  The following payments types are available:
  • Individuals and Fiduciary (Estate/Trust)
    • Estimate
    • Extension
    • Business Entities (Corporations/Limited Liability Companies/Partnerships)
      • Extension

Online Services:

FTB has many online services that are available 24 hours a day, increasing taxpayer access to information, making filing and paying taxes easier, and improving the timeliness and accuracy of tax returns. Some of the services we offer include:

  • MyFTB Account - View estimated payments and credits, view payment history, view tax returns, notices and correspondence, update contact information, view California wage and withholding information and FTB-issued 1099-G and 1099-INT records. Taxpayers can also file a protest, send messages with attachments, and chat securely with a customer service representative.
  • Pay Online (Web Pay) - Allows individual and business taxpayers to make a wide array of tax payments, from the current amount owed and tax deposits to estimated tax payments, up to one year in advance.
  • Electronic Installment Agreements - Taxpayers can submit a request to enter into an installment agreement through our website.
  • Check your refund status - Allows individuals to check the status of their refund.
  • Subscription Services - Subscribe to receive important information regarding our e-file program by email. We also offer other subscription lists for various tax topics, from legislation and regulations to withholding information and press releases.

Mandates:

  • Business e-file – Beginning  January 1, 2015, any business entity that files an original or amended tax return for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014 using tax preparation software is required to e-file their return with FTB unless a waiver is obtained. Business entity e-file waiver requests may be submitted directly to FTB using the online application available on our website. The law applies to business entities and preparers who file the return on a business entity’s behalf. Combined returns are included in the requirement. Although we accept FTB 541, California Fiduciary Income Tax Return in e-file, Estate and Trust returns are not included in this requirement.
  • Individual e-file – Beginning January 1, 2004 tax practitioners who prepare more than 100 California individual income tax returns annually and prepare one or more using tax preparation software are required to e-file all personal income tax returns. FTB may assess a penalty of $50 per return against preparers for each   return that can be e-filed that is not, unless the failure to e-file is due to reasonable cause and not willful neglect. Reasonable cause can include a taxpayer's election not to e-file. No practitioner waivers are available, however tax preparers who cannot e-file returns due to reasonable cause can submit FTB 8454, e-file Opt-Out Record for Individuals.
  • Mandatory Individual Electronic Funds Transfer – Individuals are required to remit all payments electronically once they make an estimate or extension payment exceeding $20,000 or file an original tax return with a total tax liability over $80,000 for any taxable year that begins on or after January 1, 2009. Once they meet this threshold, all subsequent payments regardless of amount, tax type, or taxable year must be remitted electronically. The first payment that triggers the mandatory e-pay requirement does not have to be made electronically. Individuals that meet these requirements and do not send the payment electronically will be subject to a one percent noncompliance penalty.

Plans for expansion:

  • Future expansion will include electronic amended returns for individuals.
