FTB 763B notices issued as a result of AB 85 system changesMarch 2022 Tax News
Follow-up article for a Public Service Bulletin posted on our website January 14, 2022
The Franchise Tax Board (FTB) is implementing system changes to accommodate the passage of AB 85 (Stats. 2020, Ch. 8). One of the changes required FTB to create FTB ID numbers for all partnerships not registered with the Secretary of State (SOS), even if it had an Employer Identification Number (EIN) on file. The FTB 763B Notice was issued to notify the partnership of its new FTB ID number.
Approximately 295,000 computer generated notices have been sent since December 7, 2021. These notices resulted in higher call volumes to both SOS and FTB contact centers. Many of the calls were from entities who are no longer doing business in the state, but are still showing active within FTB’s systems.
If your client received an FTB 763B Notice and their non-registered partnership is no longer doing business in the state of California, contact FTB to close the account.
