Purpose of Bulletin
To notify staff and the public that on January 27, 2016, the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) Refund Mobile app will be available for download at the Apple App Store for mobile devices with an iOS operating system.
Usage of FTB’s website by users with mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) has doubled each year over the past four years. With sales of these devices set to surpass PC sales in the near future, FTB is looking to offer an alternative option for the web and call centers by creating a mobile application to address the growing population of mobile device users.
The initial implementation of the application will be available in English and allow individuals, and/or their authorized representative, the freedom to access their current year refund status information on the go.
The following information is required to check the status of a current-year California personal income tax refund:
- Social security number
- Mailing address
- Refund amount shown on the current year tax return
