SACRAMENTO - The State has postponed tax deadlines until July 15.

The Franchise Tax Board announced the special tax relief for all California taxpayers due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the board, they are postponing the filing and payment deadlines until July for all individuals and business entities for:

  • 2019 tax returns
  • 2019 tax return payments
  • 2020 1st and 2nd quarter estimate payments
  • 2020 LLC taxes and fees
  • 2020 Non-wage withholding payments

“The COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting life for people and businesses statewide,” said State Controller Betty T. Yee, who serves as chair of FTB. “We are further extending tax filing deadlines for all Californians to July 15. Hopefully, this small measure of relief will help allow people to focus on their health and safety during these challenging times.”

To give taxpayers a deadline consistent with the IRS without the federal dollar limitations, FTB is following the federal relief described HERE.

FTB is extending the relief to all California taxpayers and taxpayers do not need to claim any special treatment or submit to qualify for the relief.

If possible, taxpayers should continue to file on time to get their refunds timely. The FTB will continue to process tax returns, issue refunds, and provide phone and live chat service to taxpayers needing assistance.
