Mandatory Password Change for MyFTB Account

Federal regulations require annual changes to passwords used to access federal tax data. We receive tax information from the IRS and must follow their security requirements.

If you registered an account with us to view your clients’ MyFTB Account data, you will need to change your password 12 months after the date you registered or last changed your password.

To remind you of this requirement, we will send a message 30 days before your password expires to the email address you used when you registered. You can either change your password at that time or wait until the next time you login.

Changing your password is easy:

  • Login with your current user name and password.
  • From the Online Services for Tax Professionals page select the “Change my password, email address, security questions, or the security image.” link.
  • Enter your new password and save your changes.
  • Make sure you remember your new password.
