Taxpayers' Bill of Rights Hearings

As required by The Morgan Property Taxpayers' Bill of Rights, the State Board of Equalization (BOE) holds an annual public hearing for property taxes to listen to your suggestions, comments, and concerns.

About the hearing –if you wish to make comments

At the public hearing, you are welcome to provide comments on any items presented in the Taxpayers' Rights Advocate's report or concerning an issue that you may be currently working with the Taxpayers' Rights Advocate Office on. Although you are not required to make advance arrangements to speak at a taxpayers' bill of rights hearing, please contact the Taxpayers' Rights Advocate (TRA) Office beforehand to let them know the nature of your topic so the TRA office can be responsive to your needs. If your proposal is complex or extensive, we encourage you to submit it in advance to the TRA Office, and then summarize it in your oral presentation.

Note: for 2017 meetings were hosted by the newly established California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA)

The property tax hearing, and business taxes meeting, provided an opportunity to present – in person or in writing –ideas, concerns, and recommendations regarding legislation, the quality of agency services, and other issues related to the BOE's and CDTFA's administration of their respective tax programs. At the business taxes meeting a person could comment on the administration of sales and use taxes, environmental fees, fuel taxes, and excise taxes administered by the CDTFA. At the property tax hearings one could comment on the property tax programs and laws administered by the BOE, and identify ways to resolve any problems identified in the Taxpayers' Rights Advocate's current Annual Report; the current annual report for the August 2017 hearing dates was the fiscal year 2015-16 Annual Report.
