FTB holding short-year returns

The FTB has told us they will not process short year returns filed for future tax years until the tax year is open and the FTB’s return processing services for that specific tax year become available. For example, return processing services for a 2019 tax return will become available January 2, 2020.

However, the FTB will send a confirmation letter to confirm receipt of the future year return and notify the taxpayer their return will be held for processing until the tax year is open.
