New notification requirements for probate administrators
PURPOSE OF BULLETIN
Beginning July 1, 2008, the general personal representative or the estate attorney of a decedent’s estate must notify the Franchise Tax Board. This requirement applies to estates for which letters of administration are first issued on or after July 1, 2008.
Assembly Bill 361 states that the general personal representative or the estate attorney must give us notice of the administration of the estate no later than 90 days after the date letters of administration are first issued to the general personal representative. This will allow us to file timely probate claims in the courts.
