State of California Personal Income Tax Extensions – Tax Year 2012
| GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
California gives you an automatic filing extension through October 15, 2013. You don't need to apply for one.
Here's what you should do if you can't file by April 15, 2013:
• You are due a refund — File your return by October 15, 2013. Choose e-file and direct deposit for the fastest refund.
Extension for federal returns: The process and dates for requesting a filing extension for your federal return may be different. Refer to the IRS Website for information.
Mandatory Electronic Payments – You are required to remit all your payments electronically once you make an estimate or extension payment exceeding $20,000 or you file an original return with a total tax liability over $80,000 for any taxable year that begins on or after January 1, 2009. Once you meet this threshold, all subsequent payments regardless of amount, tax type, or taxable year must be remitted electronically. The first payment that would trigger the mandatory e-pay requirement does not have to be made electronically. Individuals who do not send the payment electronically will be subject to a one percent noncompliance penalty. Electronic payments can be made using Web Pay on the Franchise Tax Board’s (FTB’s) website, electronic funds withdrawal (EFW) as part of the e-file return, or your credit card. For more information or to obtain the waiver form, go to ftb.ca.gov and search for “mandatory epay.”
