Tax Help For California's New Business Owners
Congratulations on starting your new business in California!
As a Certified Public Accountant, I know that California tax laws can be complex and overwhelming to a new business owner. I've dedicated my time at the Board of Equalization to helping taxpayers navigate these complex tax laws and providing resources to help you find answers to your questions.
I encourage you to make an appointment for a free taxpayer education consultation at your local field office. The Taxpayer Educational Consultation Program is a free one-on-one consultation with a trained BOE staff member who can review your business operation and recordkeeping system. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about filing, recordkeeping, and get answers about BOE-administered taxes. To request a consultation, contact me via email at with the subject line "Request for Consultation".
Subscribe to our newsletters as a helpful way to keep up-to-date on changes to tax laws and news in our district.
