California Withholding Law

As you may be aware California Revenue & Taxation Code, Section 18662  require withholding of California income from payments and disbursements made to non residents on California source income.  The withholding  rate for NON-RESIDENTS is currently 7%. As a result we must have every  owner, REGARDLESS OF RESIDENCY complete ONE of the following.
