We developed a quick reference guide to help parties involved in a real estate transaction understand their responsibilities when it comes to real estate withholding. FTB 4065, Quick Reference Guide – California Real Estate Withholding Forms includes information on what forms the seller, buyer, and Real Estate Escrow Person/Qualified Intermediary are responsible for during escrow. The easy to follow charts explain the purpose and actions required from the specified party for each form in order to successfully comply with California real estate withholding requirements.
For more detailed information on California real estate withholding, go to ftb.ca.gov and search for real estate withholding.
