Tax Clearance or Tax Good Standing before reinstating
Several states require a tax clearance or tax good standing certificate while filing for company reinstatement. If you are planning to reinstate California Corporation, you will be required to file a “Tax Status Compliance Certificate”, which is also known as an “Entity Status Letter”. This letter is issued by the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) to corporations that have met all their tax obligations in the state.
The California Tax Status Compliance Certificate will be issued by FTB to a company if they meet the following requirements:
- A Domestic or Foreign business entity must be registered as a legal entity with the Secretary of State – California
- The California Corporation in question should have paid all types of California state taxes as well as any outstanding fee or penalty.
- The California Corporation should not be in a default or suspended list of businesses
Once you apply for a California Tax Status Compliance Certificate, the processing time can vary from a few weeks to almost a month. We at IncParadise can help in speeding up the process by communicating directly with the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) on your behalf.
