California doesn't conform to many aspects of the tax changes from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). Many of the itemized deductions that are now limited or eliminated on the federal return are still allowed on a California return. This includes personal casualty losses and unreimbursed employee expenses.
The limits for the Earned Income Credit for California have also been adjusted. You may qualify if you have no children and a federal adjusted gross income (AGI) of less than $16,751, or if you have 1 or more children with an AGI of less than $24,951. Other qualifications apply. The income tax rates have also been adjusted for inflation.
Three new voluntary contribution funds have been added: Organ and Tissue Donor Registry Voluntary Tax Contribution Fund, National Alliance on Mental Illness California Voluntary Tax Contribution Fund, and Schools Not Prisons Voluntary Tax Contribution Fund.
