In an effort to streamline the payment process for California business taxpayers, the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) announced that it will now accept a single check payment for multiple business entities. A single payment can be made for different entity types (corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, etc.) and different payment types (extensions, estimates, return payments, etc.) by filing Form FTB 5013, Multipayment Voucher Submission for Business Entities, along with the payment check. This new payment process will eliminate the need to cut multiple checks and complete separate payment forms to the FTB.

The takeaway

The FTB’s introduction of multiple payment submission forms reflects the FTB’s desire to ease the administrative burden of processing numerous checks, both for the taxpayer and for the FTB. This announcement is welcome relief for taxpayers with significant amounts of California tax filings that previously required separate checks or entries into the online portal.
