The California Franchise Tax Board has a number of resources available to assist with the preparation and the filing of California Franchise Tax forms. Taxpayers can find information related to filing basics, tax tables and payment options.
Some of the most useful resources on the California Franchise Tax Board website include legal documents, regulations and litigation. As of March 2015, these documents are updated periodically based changes in tax law. In addition, the complete California Revenue and Tax Code is listed with hyperlinks to all of the subsections. Users can also find information related to any changes in tax forms and the impact on the associated franchise tax calculation.
Users looking for more technical information can directly contact a legal or tax expert from the California Franchise Tax Board, as listed on the official website of the organization. Users looking to ask questions related to franchise tax calculations should clearly describe the issues, provide a material facts statement, identify any relevant statutes and determine if the tax is applicable to just California law or federal law as well.
After all information is gathered, users can file their California Franchise Tax forms by paper or online. A list of all services that accept electronic filing is available through the California Franchise Tax Board website.
