Beginning with 2022 tax returns, partnerships and LLCs must provide the following information in order to e-file their returns or make electronic payments:
- LPs and LLCs registered with the Secretary of State (SOS) must provide their SOS registered numbers; and
- Entities not registered with the SOS must provide an FTB Assigned ID number (previously referred to as an FTB Temporary ID number).
These entities may no longer e-file or make electronic payments using their EIN. For Web Pay, if an entity’s SOS number does not work, taxpayers must use their FTB Assigned ID number.
If a taxpayer does not have an FTB Assigned ID number, tax professionals can obtain the ID number by:
- Locating the information in the client’s MyFTB account; or
- Contacting the Tax Practitioner Hotline. The FTB has confirmed that tax professionals do not have to provide a POA or TIA to obtain this information.
