**Effective January 1, 2018, FTB will discontinue the Paperless Schedules K-1 (565 or 568) program. Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies can continue to submit the Schedule K-1 (565/568) with their e-filed (preferred) or paper filed tax return.**

Thank you for your interest in the California e-file Program.

General Information

FTB's Paperless Schedules K-1 Program is an effective and resourceful way to submit and process Schedules K-1 (565 or 568). Through the Paperless Schedule K-1 (565 or 568) Program, partnerships and LLCs, or their representatives, may file hundreds of Schedules K-1 (565 or 568) by CD or portable USB/flash drive, instead of sending paper schedules. It significantly reduces resources expended by businesses and FTB to produce, file, process, and store paper.

Our Paperless Schedules K-1 Program includes taxable years 2015 and 2016 Schedules K-1 (565 or 568). Formatting is easy for the two schedules because they are almost identical in layout.

  • We also provide TestWare for error-free formatting.

FTB also offers e-filing for Forms 565 and 568 and their associated schedules, including Schedules K-1.

For more information about our business e-file program refer to FTB Pub. 1346B, Business e-file Return and Stand-Alone Payment Guide for Software Developers and Transmitters, or visit our website at and search for business e-file.
