Purpose of Bulletin

To advise the public of the Franchise Tax Board's (FTB) updated Privacy Policy and new Privacy Policy Statement.


One of FTB’s foundational principles is to protect taxpayer information and privacy. Our Privacy Policy was updated in Spring 2015 and we have a new Privacy Policy Statement. FTB encourages all employees and the public to review the Privacy Policy so they have a better understanding of their rights regarding the privacy and security of their personal information.

Additional Information

FTB Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy notifies the public of how FTB handles personal information. The policy describes how we collect, handle, and use personal information as well as the rights the public has to manage the personal information we collect. To view our updated Privacy Policy, go to ftb.ca.gov and search for privacy policy.

FTB Privacy Policy Statement

The Privacy Policy Statement provides a non-electronic notification to the public that we maintain a Privacy Policy detailing their rights, the types of information we gather, and how we use it. FTB will post the Privacy Policy Statement in all offices that are open to the public.
