Subject: Rental Property
Date: Tue, 23 Mar 2004
I live in Illinois and my mother died, leaving me some rental property in California. I made a profit of $4,000 last year. Do I have to file a tax return for California? How do I do it? Where do we get the forms?

You are required to file Form 540NR. You can find the forms at www.ftb.ca.gov. When income is taxable in two states, you get a state tax credit, usually on the income tax return for your resident state. Consider getting help with your income tax returns for this issue.
