Business Entity Estimate Payment Notification letters February 2020 Tax News

In late January/early February 2020, we began mailing FTB 3713 Summary of Account Payments, Transfers, and Credits to business entities who made an Estimated Tax Payment(s) or Estimated LLC Fee payment during the 2019 tax year.

This account summary will provide:

  • Payment
  • Transfer
  • Credit information
  • Payment amounts and effective dates

Our notification letter provides the same data available internally to FTB call center agents and proactively addresses the most common reason tax professionals contact the Tax Practitioner Hotline: calling to verify payments.

For 2020, we have added “This is Not a Bill” to the top of the letter for added clarity and to discourage recipients from remitting payment with the notice. Finally, payment information is also available online to businesses and their tax representatives who register for a MyFTB account.
