Learning More Of The FTB 4600

Filing out a tax return form

Why You Received FTB 4600

FTB 4600 in California is a formal communication seeking a taxpayer’s tax-related information and documentation, requesting a tax return. The request for a tax return is typically sent to individuals, businesses, or entities that are required to file taxes. 

Responding to a request for a tax return is a critical obligation for taxpayers. Failing to comply or providing incomplete or inaccurate information may lead to penalties, fines, or further investigation by the tax authorities.

What You Need To Do with FTB 4600

Respond by the date mentioned in the notice you received, actively taking part within the given timeframe.

You have two options for compliance:

  1. Act promptly by filing your tax return.
  2. Make use of the "Reply to FTB" form enclosed with the notice. This form enables you to indicate one of the following options:
    • You have already filed a tax return.
    • You are not required to file a tax return, or you are uncertain about your filing obligation.

You should adhere to the FTB 4600 within 30 days from the date on the notice you received. In case you fail to respond within this timeframe, the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) may evaluate your tax liability using the information they have. Consequently, this assessment could include interest charges as well as a penalty for delinquent filing.

To ensure a precise assessment and ensure timely adherence, we highly recommend that you promptly take swift action and provide the necessary tax-related information as requested. Your cooperation in fulfilling this request not only helps prevent potential penalties but also plays a crucial role in maintaining your overall tax compliance and upholding the integrity of the entire tax system.
