Web Pay alternatives

It has come to our attention some recently registered business entities may not be able to use the FTB Web Pay application. We are diligently working to resolve the issue to ensure all business entities may use the Web Pay application. If an entity is unable to use Web Pay, FTB offers several other payment options as follows:

  1. Credit Card
  2. Check or Money Order
  3. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) for corporations only
  4. Electronic Funds Withdrawal. (EFW)

The instructions for each of the payment options may be found at Payment options | FTB.ca.gov.

It is important to note, corporations, S corporations, and limited liability companies taxed as corporations whose total tax liability, including any pass-through entity (PTE) elective tax, exceeds $80,000 are required to make all future payments electronically (California Revenue and Taxation Code section 19011(a)(2)).

The mandatory e-pay requirement also applies to any single estimated tax payment or extension payment of more than $20,000. The triggering payment does not need to be made electronically.
