The California Franchise Tax Board made several changes for the 2017 tax year. Most of the same credits continue to be offered, including the Earned Income Credit, the Child and Dependent Care Credit, and the Renter's Credit, though the thresholds for each have been adjusted for inflation. The Donated Fresh Fruits or Vegetables Credit (Form 3811) has been replaced with the New Donated Fresh Fruits or Vegetables Credit (Form 3814).
The most significant change is the new Schedule X, which replaces Form 540X for filing amended returns. Amended returns will now be prepared on Form 540 or Form 540NR with Schedule X to show the difference of refund or tax owed between the original and amended return.
We make filing your state return easy. After preparing your federal return your information is carried forward to your California return. In a matter of minutes both federal and state tax returns are ready to be e-filed. If you prefer, you can print and mail your return.
