Our Entire Website Now Uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption

Effective Monday, December 19, 2011, our entire website was secured using SSL encryption. We automatically redirect all visitors from "http" to "https." We plan to update all http references in our web content and products to https over the next few months.

  • The change will encrypt any sensitive data submitted by customers when using email forms and the survey. Customers should not include their confidential information.
  • Customers will no longer receive a message stating they are leaving a secure website when going from an interactive service or application (CalFile, My FTB Account, or Check Refund) to static content (ftb.ca.gov homepage).
  • Customers will see the lock image in the browser acknowledging they are on a secure site.
  • If you experience any technical problems, email the Webmaster.
