ReadyReturn uses information from your 2012 tax return and income as reported by your employer to pre-fill a California tax return. If you qualify, all you need to do is review your return, make any necessary changes, then sign and e-file your return.
Once we receive your final wage information from your employer, you can begin by providing your FTB-assigned Customer Service Number.

In addition, you must have had only one employer in 2013 and earned less than $172,615 if single or $258,927 if head of household.
What if my tax situation changed in 2013?
If you got married, entered into a registered domestic partnership (RDP), had a child, received additional income, or qualify for a tax credit, you can easily update your ReadyReturn online. We will guide you through changing your return.
