“Look before you leap” into business by checking if the business is in good standing with the state of California.

It’s no guarantee, but a good place to start!

California Franchise Tax Board Entity Status Letter

An “Entity Status Letter” verifies whether or not an entity is in good standing with the Franchise Tax Board and provides certification for:

    •    Legal status in court proceedings.

    •    An outstanding liability that could have an effect on an entity's credit rating (e.g., the closing of escrow).

    •    Verification of an exempt status.

    •    Registering a corporation or LLC to transact business in another state.

It does not reflect the entity's status with other agencies.

You can request an entity status letter for the following:

    •    Corporations

    •    Exempt organizations

    •    Banks

    •    Financial institutions

    •    Limited liability companies (taxed as corporations, partnerships, or disregarded entities)
