Filing a very old California FTB original return.

Hello, I'm glad I found this site! I have a question regarding the filing of an old 90's return. My spouse and I were assessed as single (obviously) since no return was ever filed. Roughly four times the amount was collected via a levy for my spouse's account. The account was paid in full including all penalties and interest. Now they're coming after me.

Since California doesn't have a sol on unfiled returns , I felt it was best to go ahead and file a joint return. Needless to say, it reduced our tax liability greatly. It's been longer than four years since any overpayment, so, we're not looking for a refund.

Do any of the experts on here know if they must now accept the return and married filing jointly status? If they so, then shouldn't my balance zero out? So far, they havent sent it back or refused it! lol
Sorry so long.

It's been longer than four years since any overpayment, so, we're not looking for a refund.====> Most states have a similar statute of limitations as the IRS to claim a tax refund, but some states might differ slightly. For example, California has a 4year statute of limitations for filing an income tax return to claim a refund.

Do any of the experts on here know if they must now accept the return and married filing jointly status?=====>it depends;aslongas you file 1040 AS MFJ you usually must file your CA return as MFJ too;however, If you file a joint tax return for federal purposes, you may file separately for CA if either spouse was an active member of the US armed forces or any auxiliary military branch during 2015.
A nonresident for the entire year and had no income from CA sources during 2015


If they so, then shouldn't my balance zero out? So far, they havent sent it back or refused it! ========>>it also depends on your return situation.it is up to them so you may contact CA FTB fro more accurate info in detail. Good luck.
