Mandatory e-Pay for individuals in California

Hi:

 

Just got a letter from California Franchise Tax Board, saying that I need to pay all my future tax payments electronically on their website and I also found this online:

https://www.ftb.ca.gov/pay/mandatory-e-pay.html

 

Just for 2019, I already filed the return and made the payment for all the tax due electronically with TurboTax in July 2020, so my question is that, do I need to do anything regarding this "Mandatory e-pay"? 

 

Thanks.

Just to be clear, I'm just wondering whether I need to do anything only for 2019 tax (for which the payment has already been made)?

I understand that, for future tax years, such as 2020 and 2021,  I need to pay the tax due electronically.

Going forward all future payments should be made online as requested ... nothing you can change on payments already made.

Thank you! actually can I still make payments with TurboTax for the future, as what I have been doing - would that be counted as "paid online"? Thanks.

did you read the WHOLE notice?  e-payments are only required when that amount is 

Electronic payments are required if you either:

Make an estimated tax or extension payment over $20,000
File an original return with a tax liability over $80,000

 

then you can also see if you can get a waiver

and what's a taxpayer suppose to do if no bank account or credit card.
