California e-file Program Enrollment Requirements (Individual, Fiduciary and Business e-file)

Providers approved in the IRS Electronic Filing (e-file) Program are automatically enrolled in the California e-file Program. In addition, we will automatically receive any updates that you make to your IRS account within 7-10 business days.

Requirements for e-file participation:

  • To be automatically enrolled in the California e-file Program, you need to be an accepted participant in the IRS e-file Program. We receive your account information within 7-10 business days after the IRS accepts you into their program.
  • Use your IRS-assigned Electronic Filer Identification Number (EFIN) to e-file with FTB. If you transmit returns, use your IRS-assigned Electronic Transmitter Identification Number (ETIN) with FTB.
  • Comply with the guidelines found in FTB Publication 1345, Handbook for Authorized e-file Providers, IRS Pubs. 1345, 3112, 4162, 4163, 4164 and in Revenue Procedure 2007-40, 2007-26 I.R.B. 1488 (or the latest update), to the extent that they apply to FTB's e-file Program.

Once you receive your IRS EFIN, you can verify your enrollment with California by contacting our e-Programs Customer Service at 916.845.0353.
