Valid Individual FTB XML Schemas

The following tables provide information on valid Schemas and Business Rules for software developers who are interested in developing software for California's Individual e-file program. Beginning with Tax Year 2018, California e-file Schemas and Business Rules are made available on the FTA State Exchange System (SES) website in conjunction with SWIFT (Secure Web Internet File Transfer) to Authorized Users. If you are a software developer and do not have an e-file Schema SWIFT account or have access to the CA SES folder, please contact the e-file coordinator.
