Combined report, water’s-edge e-filing coming in June

Corporations who file combined reports or water’s-edge returns will be able to e-file their returns beginning June 16, 2008.

Business e-file began in January of 2006, allowing business taxpayers to e-file the Form 100 California Corporation Franchise or Income Tax Return for the first time. In January 2007, we added these forms:

  • Form 565, Partnership Return of Income.
  • Form 568, Limited Liability Company Return of Income.
  • Form 100S, California S Corporation Franchise or Income Tax Return.

Adding combined reporting and the Form 100W to our business e-file program makes it possible for the largest and most complex business returns to be e-filed. The IRS already mandates e-filing for many of these returns, so this will increase convenience for those of you already e-filing the federal return.

Contact your software providers to see if they are supporting e-filing for combined reports and the Form 100W. Stay tuned to our website and to Tax News for more information about our Business e-file Program.
