Why Was My Business Entity Suspended or Forfeited, and What Are the Effects?
We suspend businesses for at least one of the following reasons:
- Failure to file one or more tax returns.
- Nonpayment of taxes and penalties, including the SOS penalty, fees, and interest.
Suspension or forfeiture affects a business in many ways. The business loses its rights, powers, and privileges to conduct business in California and will be unable to:
- Bring an action or defend itself in court.
- Receive an automatic extension of time to file their California income tax return.
- File a claim for refund.
- File or maintain an appeal with the Franchise Tax Board and Board of Equalization.
- Begin or continue a protest.
