California Franchise Tax Board Guidance
The California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) sent out letters to most of the Councils, Assemblies, and Chapters in California in February and March of this year. Here is some additional guidance recently received from the FTB.
All correspondence filed with the Franchise Tax Board must include the 7-digit corporation number assigned to the subordinate organization. This number can be located on the determination letter.
If a subordinate has received more than one determination letter with different corporation numbers assigned as a result of a duplicate name, please contact our office so that we can clear the duplicate account.
To avoid unintentionally re-naming the subordinate organization, please use the following format on all returns and correspondence:
Name (Council, Assembly, or Chapter)
Number (Council or Assembly)
Knights of Columbus, or simply KOC
Father John Smith Council #123 Knights of Columbus
Bishop John Smith Assembly #123 KOC
