Assembly Bill 85, exempts LLCs. LLPs, and LPs from paying the annual minimum franchise tax of $800 in their first taxable year. To qualify for this exemption, the entity must register, organize, or file with the secretary of state to do business in California between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2023.
