For Immediate Release


Sacramento – The Franchise Tax Board (FTB) today announced business taxpayers may use credit cards to pay state income taxes. This move comes as a response to multiple requests from business taxpayers for credit card payment options.

The FTB now offers business taxpayers three ways to pay estimated tax payments, extension payments, and any amount due on current year or prior year tax returns.

Business taxpayers subject to the mandatory electronic funds transfer requirement can use credit card payments to meet this requirement.

Personal income taxpayers and businesses can make their online payments using FTB’s Web Pay or by credit card through Official Payments Corporation. A convenience fee is charged for this service by Official Payments Corporation.

In 2013, personal income taxpayers made more than 163,500 credit payments totaling more than $200 million.
