Yup, California Franchise Tax Board will come after you even if you have a mail drop address only. Been dealing with them for 5 years now with them claiming that I earn income in California. Send their form back with a copy of my Nevada DL and my Mexican Residente Permamente card. They respond with a "OK, you are cleared for this year"........Think I need LancairDriver to write a letter for me

Did he have income in Calif? I mean, just because you get your mail there doesn't mean you owe taxes.

File a tax Calif return on line with no income in state with no tax due . done Tell the state you rent and get a tax refund.

Be careful of claiming residency but not filing california tax return. The golden state tax man chases civic scoflaws.


the golden state is relentless in its pursuit of revenue. they have their ways to find you. remarkably resourceful. I would recommend picking almost any other state to claim residency.

I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure California hasn't had the renters' credit for some years.

My voter registration, drivers license, and passport application, all used my Alaska residence address. I also have a residential address in CA for part of the year.

I have properties that I pay taxes on in CA and AK, and have multiple vehicles registered in both states. I have had no issues with the CA franchise tax board, or the DMV in either state about my multiple addresses.

There are other issues with registering a vehicle in CA that make other states a better choice if you have the option.




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!
