Package X discontinued

Package X, the FTB tax forms catalogue, is going out of production. The individual forms and instructions included in Package X are available to download and print from our website at If you do not have internet access, you may request forms and instructions, or prior year Package X books  by calling the Tax Practitioner Hotline at 916.845.7057, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Part of the reason we are discontinuing Package X is declining use and rising costs. The quantity of Package X catalogs printed has decreased more than 90 percent over the past decade. However, our business strategy is to provide services and information electronically, and discontinuing Package X is consistent with this strategy.

All forms are available on our website around-the-clock, and at no charge. An added bonus is that revised forms are available virtually immediately. You can also find information about forms changes on our forms and publications webpage.

If you have any questions, the Package X customer service phone number is 916.845.7070. It will be available until April 16, 2009.
