Tax Clearance or Tax Good Standing before reinstating
It is important to know that several states in the USA require a business entity to acquire a Tax Clearance or Tax Good Standing certificate prior to reinstatement. The question is – do you require such a certificate to reinstate California LLC? Here’s what you should know:
- If a domestic or foreign business entity has been suspended by California secretary of state due to failure to file statement of information then you need to ensure that form AB 2341 has been filed as it allows LLC’s to avoid the minimum annual tax or franchise tax for the current taxable year.
- If your domestic or foreign business entity has been suspended by California Franchise Tax Board due to failure to file final annual or franchise tax return for the preceding taxable year then you will have to obtain a California Tax Clearance Certificate prior to California reinstatement.
Once you apply for a California Tax Clearance 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.
