The FTB has added information on the individual status letter (FTB 4148) to its COVID-19 FAQs. An individual status letter (a.k.a., a veteran affairs status letter) helps individuals get student loans or Veteran Affairs financing and shows lenders and third parties, such as employers, that the individual has no outstanding California income tax obligations.
Due to the current COVID-19 state of emergency, the FTB will process requests for individual status letters before the postponed 2019 tax return due date of July 15, 2020. Normally, the FTB would provide an individual status letter only after tax returns for the current year are due.
