Contact the California Secretary of State to verify that the LLC was actually dissolved and the date thereof. You can do this online. Then contact the FTB Executive Liaison Office at 800-883-5910 to discuss the tax return for 2008 if you determine that the LLC was dissolved properly on the date that you meant to dissolve it.
I agree with my colleague. Consult with a CPA.
