Part II Taxpayer Declaration and Signature Authorization (Be sure you obtain and keep a copy of your return.)
Under penalties of perjury, I declare that I have examined a copy of my individual income tax return and accompanying schedules and statements for the tax
year ending December 31, 2017, and to the best of my knowledge and belief, it is true, correct, and complete. I further declare that the information I provided
to my electronic return originator (ERO), transmitter, or intermediate service provider (including my name, address, and social security number or individual
tax identification number) and the amounts shown in Part I above agree with the information and amounts shown on the corresponding lines of my electronic
income tax return. If applicable, I authorize an electronic funds withdrawal of the amount on line 2 and/or the estimated tax payments as shown on my return
and on form FTB 8455, California e-file Payment Record for Individuals, or a comparable form. If applicable, I declare that direct deposit refund amount on line 3
agrees with the direct deposit authorization stated on my return. If I have filed a joint return, this is an irrevocable appointment of the other spouse/RDP as an
agent to authorize an electronic funds withdrawal or direct deposit. I authorize my ERO, transmitter, or intermediate service provider to transmit my complete
return to the Franchise Tax Board (FTB). If the processing of my return or refund is delayed, I authorize the FTB to disclose to my ERO, intermediate service
provider, and/or transmitter the reason(s) for the delay or the date when the refund was sent. If I am filing a balance due return, I understand that if the FTB
does not receive full and timely payment of my tax liability, I remain liable for the tax liability and all applicable interest and penalties. I acknowledge that I have
read and consent to the Electronic Funds Withdrawal Consent included on the copy of my electronic income tax return. I have selected a personal identification
number (PIN) as my signature for my electronic income tax return and, if applicable, my Electronic Funds Withdrawal Consent.
