In its September 9 news release
, FTB noted that it automatically conforms to IRS postponement periods for presidentially declared disasters, and that any counties added later to the disaster area will be granted the same extension of time to file. At the time of this writing, FTB has confirmed with CSEA that it is working on updating its website information regarding the filing extension for Tehama and Trinity Counties.
