IF you do not pay the CA State minimum franchise tax the State will at some point suspend the entity (LLC).
I would consider amending the year ended 2011 to check the Final Return box in addition to filing the dissolution forms. As the entity has not conducted business during the year ended 2012, this may alleviate concerns the State may some day come after you personally for this debt, which I have seen happen only one time, therefore I feel comfortable commenting the State will suspend the entity and not pursue other action.
Please inquire if you have further concerns.
