What's the recommendation for CA S corp returns accepted by FTB before announcement that estimates must be paid via Lacerte?


Great to see you in the community. In Lacerte if you were to type "CA Estimates" in the upper right search box and click on Search it would bring up this knowledge base for you:

California Corporate and S-Corporate Electronic Payment of Estimated Tax


This knowledge base points out that new for 2018 the estimates will no longer be transmitted with the return:

New! Beginning with Tax Year 2018, California Corporate and S-Corporate Estimated Tax Payments can now be transmitted electronically through the Estimated Tax Wizard.  This means that CA estimated payments will  NO LONGER be transmitted with the filing of the tax return for these filing types.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
