It is unlikely you need to file at all. You do not need to file a California income tax return if your income in California was not greater than the filing threshold.

The income thresholds for 2018 are

  • Single with a total income from CA sources of $17,693 or more
  • Married with joint income from CA sources of $35,388 or more

If you income for December does exceed the above amounts, you will file a California Part Year Resident Tax Return to report the income you made in California.
