How do we obtain an extension to file our 199 with the Franchise Tax Board (FTB)? If you are unable to file the return on time, you must file for an extension using IRS Form 8868 before the filing deadline. This will allow your PTA six additional months to file both the IRS and FTB returns. This is an automatic extension for both IRS and FTB. If you request the extension, you will not have to pay the late fee as long as you file by the extended due date.
Our PTA received a penalty letter and request to file our Form 199 for 2007, 2008 and 2009 from the Franchise Tax Board (FTB.) What do we do? The California State PTA received a waiver from filing any state taxes prior to 2010. On page four, section 2 of the letter you received from the FTB, check “FTB 199N not required.” Also check the box next to “other” and after the colon write “PTA.” You will want to sign, date, enter the PTA’s address if it doesn’t match the address on page one, and mail the letter to the address sat the bottom of page four.
