      We e-file CA SMLLC Form 568 from Lacerte individual module.  We have a new LLC registered in CA on 12/1/2018.  It was input correctly in Lacerte and paper Form 568 printed TYB 12/1/2018 and TYE 12/31/2018, but Lacerte e-file transmit TYB 1/1/2018.  It triggered late $800 payment penalty notice.  The CA business start date however was transmitted correctly, but the FTB said they go by the TYB and want us to write a letter saying we filed the 568 with a wrong TYB.  Is there an easier way to handle this with the FTB since it appears to be a Lacerte global issue?

      You might talk to LaCerte about correcting it or you could contact the FTB Taxpayer Advocate

      Spoke to Lacerte, it’s their program defect but as of now they are not intending to fix it.  They said the initial SMLLC Form 568 should be e-filed from the partnership module or paper-file from the individual module.  I guess it’s a known problem for years.

      The FTB practitioner hotline wants a letter signed by the client to state that the tax year period was filed incorrectly.
