California return due dates and extended due dates – Updated January 2017

Chaptered September 14, 2016, amends Revenue and Taxation Code Sections 18601, 18633, 18633.5, and 23281. For taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2016, AB1775 modifies the California return due dates of C Corporations (Forms 100 and 100W), Limited Liability Companies (Form 568), and Partnerships (Form 565) to conform to federal law. The original due date for Form 199 will not change.

As a result of the conformity, FTB changed its policy for all business entities filing extensions to be six months after the original due date when the entity is in good standing on the original due date.
