Featured publication: FTB 985, Audit/Protest/Appeals (The Process) September 2018 Tax News

We are pleased to announce that we recently revised our publication, FTB 985 Audit/Protest/Appeals (The Process).

Changes include:

  1. Office of Tax Appeals (OTA) – We included contact information for the new OTA created by the Taxpayer Transparency and Fairness Act of 2017. OTA was established to hear appeals from California taxpayers regarding various taxes and fees administered by the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration and us.
  2. MyFTB – We provided features for the tax professional including self-service options for filing a Power of Attorney declaration and filing a protest in MyFTB.
  3. Updates – Shortened and simplified language where possible while keeping the same message.

We hope you find this newly revised publication helpful. Please look for this publication at our many education and outreach events.
