Corp/LLC Estimates due April 15th

In California corporations are required to pay a annual corporate tax of the greater of $800 or 1.5% of California taxable income.  

In California LLC's are required to pay a minimum $800 LLC tax (and potentially an LLC fee when gross receipts are over $250,000).

The $800 minimums are due by April 15th.

Payments can be made by going to the FTB's website below:
