CEA Webinar Recording: FTB Withholding Changes: They are Coming! Are you in the Loop?

The CEA webinar on the FTB Withholding Changes was recorded on December 9 and is now available to order.

Beginning 1/1/20, the FTB will now require all title escrow professionals to REPORT ALL SALES, regardless of whether or not CalFIRPTA withholding applies.

  • The FTB is now requiring “seeing the work” for every seller, on every sales transaction, including the seller’s computation of any loss.

(NOTE: As in the past, there MAY be an FTB exception for sales under $100k, but the FTB has not specifically stated this to be true and title companies would be wise to proceed with caution.)

This New Requirement May Affect CURRENT Transactions:

  • Title company escrow officers that currently have open transactions in the works that are meant to close in December but could roll over into 2020 would be affected.

  • Open transactions already scheduled to close after 1/1/20 would be affected.

  • Prior versions of FTB forms will NOT work for 2020 closings.
