Do I have to attach a copy of my federal return?

Español

If you are filing Form 5402EZ, do not attach a copy of your federal return to your California return.

If you are filing Form 540 you must attach a copy of your federal return to your California return only if you filed any schedules other than schedule A, schedule B, schedule L or schedule M with your federal return.

If you are filing Form 540NR, you must always attach a complete copy of your federal return to your California return.
