FTB Purges Records

In accordance with our Information Privacy Principles for Individuals and our continued commitment to protect your personal tax information and to use that information responsibly, we will begin purging all estimate, extension, and miscellaneous payment records which are beyond the Statute of Limitations, from our accounting system. Generally, this applies to payments received before 2001.

Our retention policy ensures the responsible use of taxpayer data within our system and supports the removal of personal information for which we no longer have a business need.
