We published a new, printable brochure, FTB 4035, California Real Estate Withholding, Trusts. This new brochure provides an overview of California real estate withholding when a trust is on the title. This new brochure instructs sellers how to:

  • Identify the type of trust.
  • Determine if withholding is required.
  • Complete withholding forms.
  • Distribute withholding.
  • Withhold following a grantor’s death.

For more information on real estate withholding and trusts, check out FTB’s two-part Tax News series:

You may also find FTB 7429, Do I Need to Withhold on This Trust? very beneficial, as this tool provides a flow chart of possible scenarios when dealing with trusts.
