Ensuring California tax compliance

California requires 7% withholding and quarterly reporting by any individual or business making payments of more than $1,500 of California Source Income to a person, corporation, partnership, beneficiary or vendor who is a non-resident of California.

With our online CA 592-B reporting service you can easily import, or manually enter, CA 592-B data, run business rules/validations to help ensure that the data meets CA reporting standards, browse & edit the CA 592-B forms directly, and run summary totals reports to balance against accounting totals. Once an order is placed, our service generates an XML file that is properly formatted to upload to California’s Franchise Tax Board (FTB) site for electronic filing. PDF copies of CA 592-B forms can also be downloaded for your records.
