We are pleased to roll out the completely rewritten Publication 1016, Real Estate Withholding Guidelines, which provides guidance on the withholding requirements for sales of California real property. In our May 2015 edition, we asked our stakeholders to provide us comments on the draft copy of our Real Estate Withholding Publication. We appreciate the feedback we received and have incorporated many of the suggested edits into our final revision of the Publication 1016.
For more information on real estate withholding, go to ftb.ca.gov and search for real estate withholding.
