Reason for the changes

In November 2012 Proposition 30 was passed by California voters. This ballot measure increased the maximum personal income tax rate for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2012, from 9.3% to 12.3%. As a result of the personal income tax rate increase, the alternative withholding rate for the gain on sale of California real property by individuals and non-California partnerships increased from 9.3% to 12.3%. The gain on sale of California real property by S corporations increased from 10.8% to 13.8% and from 12.8% to 15.8% for financial S corporations. We are revising the form and instructions to reflect the increase in the rates.
