Residents from California are subject to state income tax on all income; the source is not an issue. Nonresidents of California are taxed only on their California source income. If you (an individual or entity from the state of California) makes a payment of $1,500 or more in a calendar year to a nonresident (the nonresident can be a person, corporation, partnership, fiduciary, beneficiary, shareholder or vendor) of California, then you must withhold 7% on these payments and quarterly report to the Franchise Tax Board.
There are 3 forms; the CA 592, 592-V and 592-B. The CA 592, which is the Resident and Nonresident Withholding Statement, is paper or electronically filed quarterly to the FTB along with Form 592-V or the payment voucher. By January 31 following the end of calendar year, the withholding agent must send each nonresident payee a completed Form 592-B and retain a copy for their records. Nonresident payee claims the withholding by attaching a copy of Form 592-B when filing a California tax return. Form 592-B is proof of California source income and withholding.
