Special Note for Businesses requiring Supplemental
In 2009, most of the supplemental forms were revised. The
revisions were reflected only on paper copies of the forms. The forms
accompanying eFiling have not been updated to the 2009 versions. The
differences are one of presentation leaving the practice of calculating
taxes intact. If you wish to utilize eFiling using paper forms as
templates, please transcribe the information from your 2009 versions onto
the eFiling forms as appropriate. If you require assistance with such,
please contact us at (213) 473-5901
