As of January 2020, all California residents are required to obtain minimum essential coverage for healthcare or qualify for certain exemptions or potentially face penalties included on the tax return (Form FTB 3853).
Taxpayers who purchased healthcare coverage through the Covered California marketplace may also either qualify for the Premium Assistance Subsidy or be required to repay extra advance portions of this subsidy (Form FTB 3849).
Other updates include expanding who can qualify for the California Earned Income Tax Credit (Form FTB 3514) to include individuals with qualifying ITINs as well as SSNs and expanding who can be claimed for the dependent exemption to include certain residents of Canada or Mexico who don't qualify for a SSN or ITIN.
The income tax calculation and many credit limits were adjusted for inflation. No new voluntary contributions were added for 2020.
A few dollars to file my California was a no brainer when they sent me a coupon code for a discount. The convenience of having all my info. From previous years available is worth the small fee.
