Hi I received a later requesting me to file Form 568.
I thought for single entity LLC, I would just need to file under my personal tax return.

It depends on how you elected to be treated: as a partnership or disregarded entity. California Form 568 or 565 must be filed by the 15th day of the 4th month after the close of the LLC’s taxable year.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

If you want to be treated as a disregarded entity and report all information on your person tax return on Schedule C, you still need to file FTB California Form 568, Sides 1, 2, 3, 7 and Schedules B and K if applicable, see California Form 568 Booklet for more information; and, pay the $800 fee.

We can still do a phone call, but the issue is pretty simple and the additional cost might not be justified.
