Taxpayer's 2014 tax return is under examination by the CA FTB. What actions can the taxpayer take to stop the auditor from expanding the scope to other tax years?  For the 2012 tax year, when will the statute of limitation apply if it is under the possibility of examination by FTB?   




The statute is the later of 4 years from due date or one year from date of payment. So, if the t/p filed on 4/15, the statute for 2012 is 4/15/17. There is not a lot you can do to prevent the FTB from opening another year, but they must make an assessment by 4/17/17. If the audit has started but isn't complete, you'll be asked to extend the statute.
