Because you are a resident of California - you will be subject to both - federal and California income taxes.
Assuming you are single - with gross $90 income - you likely will be in 25% tax bracket - for taxable income between $37,450 to $90,750.

http://taxfoundation.org/article/2015-tax-brackets

For California income tax purposes - you will be in 9.3% tax bracket for taxable income between 51,530 to $263,222

Is that taxes with no writeoffs? If I had expenses and that was my only income am I still taxed that full amount? In other words is it set to be paid no matter what?
Tax Professional: Lev, Tax Advisor replied 2 years ago

Based on your original post - my understanding was that you already determined gross taxable income as $90k - if that is not correct - and you need help with THAT determination - I would be glad to help.
If you provide more detailed information about each item your inherited - I will help you with determination.

Regarding your deductible expenses - just list all your expenses - and I will help to verify which are eligible for deduction.

Alos - if you have any other income - we need to know that as well as your filing status.
