Registration tip for business representatives:

If you represent more than one business, you only need to create one MyFTB account. Use information from one of the business's you represent to create your account. After you receive your PIN via U.S. Mail and log in to activate your account, you can add additional businesses to your account. Subsequently, you only need to log in once to access all the businesses you represent.

*To register for MyFTB, Enrolled Agents must have a California address on file with the IRS.
