The California Franchise Tax Board functions as the administrator for two California tax programs: the Corporation Tax program and the Personal Income Tax program. Other programs under the FTB's jurisdiction include the City Business Tax program and the Substandard Housing program.
The FTB is the successor to the office of the Franchise Tax commissioner and was established in 1950. As of 2014, the executive officer of the tax board is Selvi Stanislaus, who has been in office since 2006. In addition to various tax programs, the FTB is also in charge of the collection of vehicle registration debt on behalf of the state DMV.
