Historically the State of California published form CA 540 and the corresponding form CA 540 Instructions booklet earlier in the month of January. Last year the CA 540 Instructions booklet was delayed due to last minute income tax law changes. This year the CA 540 Instructions 2017 booklet was delayed until the last weekend of January.
