(The Deadline to file state taxes)...The Franchise Tax Board says the deadline is this Friday.

They say that is the deadline to file 2020 state personal income tax returns to avoid late filing penalties, and to be eligible for Golden State Stimulus payments. The FTB says taxpayers who are 18 or older, work and have low income, can take advantage of the California Earned Income Tax Credit and recieve up to $3,027 cash back. If by the end of the year those qualifying for CalEITC have at least5 one child under the age of 6, they may be eligible for $1,000 from the young child tax credit. Details are on the FTB website.
