Where to find last minute forms, filing information

With only a little more than two weeks before the final filing date (April 17 this year), you may find yourself needing some forms or filing information at the last minute. If that happens, check out the services offered on our Website at www.ftb.ca.gov. Here are shortcuts to some of our filing, e-filing, and payment Web pages:

  • e-file for tax preparers

    Lots of information for tax preparers on the e-file process, acknowledgement files, error resolution, and mandatory e-file, for the individual e-file program.

  • Tax forms updates

    Choose a form from the drop-down menu to see what changes have been made, and when they were made.

  • Payment options

    If your client needs some time to pay the tax owed, we offer an online installment agreement request form. We will accept credit card payment also - read the details of the credit card program on our Website.

  • Tax practitioner services

    Phone numbers and Package X are just a couple of useful items on this Web page.

  • California Tax Service Center

    This is a great one-stop shopping Website for information on taxes administered by FTB, the Employment Development Department, and the Board of Equalization (income, payroll, sales, use, property, and special taxes).
