Where to Find California Legal Forms?

California Legal Forms cover different purposes, and the state has a wide variety of these templates. Various state departments have developed free California legal forms that aim at effective interaction between state residents and government authorities. Citizens use these templates to apply for benefits, transfer ownership of their vehicles, replace certificates of title, and pay taxes. You may find and download these applications on the official website of the appropriate department, but for your convenience, all forms are available on our website. There are also California legal service forms that residents use to apply for legal services in cases such as seeking a divorce or looking to agree with maintenance arrangements.

California legal forms vary depending on the purpose of a template and the scope of its application:

  • Forms developed for tax payments. Qualified California residents use these forms to report their income tax returns and make estimated tax payments throughout the year. Some templates are designed not for individuals but for organizations, various financial corporations, and businesses based in California. They use them to figure corporation estimated tax payments and to report the credit amount for the current year, the tax amount to transfer, and to claim credits. An organization should also use specific forms to report state, local, and district sales and use tax return;
  • Forms required for conducting business. An entrepreneur that wishes to start business activity in the state of California should submit an initial registration form. Entities also need templates to make a notice of change of status or certify a continuation of a Limited Liability Partnership. An audit payment information form can also be useful when a company receives audit findings; 
  • Applications developed for employees' needs.  For example, workers should use a specific template to request worker-funded benefits intended for individuals who have a full or partial loss of pay because of non work-related disability. There is also a particular form used to apply for worker's compensation claims entitled to employees injured in their workplace. You may find templates designed to inform workers of their rights when they apply for a job, and forms in the contract format, such as a guaranty of worker's compensation liabilities;
  • Forms developed for use by medical professionals. For example, there are templates created for physicians, and they must complete them to inform a care facility about the physical and mental condition of a resident.
