No cash payment policy May 2018 Tax News

This is just a quick reminder about our no cash policy and our payment options

In general, we do not accept cash payments. However, your clients in cash-based businesses who are unable to pay by means other than cash may apply for an exemption to our no cash policy using the form FTB 3711, No Cash Policy Exemption.

Once the exemption application has been received, we will respond in writing within two business days. If approved, you or your client may contact us to schedule an appointment to make the cash payment. Requests for appointments need to be made at least 14 business days prior to the date you wish to make the payment.

If the taxpayer is required to make mandatory e-payments, we recommend that you also complete and submit a Mandatory e-Pay Election to form FTB 4107, Discontinue or Waiver Request, for individuals, or FTB 3816, Electronic Funds Transfer Election to Discontinue or Waiver Request, for business entities each time a cash payment is made.
