Congratulations on opening your new business in California. On behalf of the State Board of Equalization, please accept my best wishes for a successful business venture.
California’s small businesses are the backbone of our state’s economy. Our state cannot succeed without the jobs, services, and tax revenue that California’s small businesses create.
However, running a small business in California is no easy task. As a former small business owner, I know firsthand how difficult it is to understand and comply with all of California’s business and tax regulations.
That’s why I have prepared this electronic resource, “California’s Guide for a New Business.” This informational message is your one-stop shop for filing sales taxes, electronic business services, and taxpayer assistance programs.
Remember, I represent you and your business before California’s sales tax agency. Should you ever run into trouble or need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact one of my field offices or call me directly, toll free at (866) 910-9558 or email me at BoardMemberSteel@boe.ca.gov.
It is an honor to serve as your elected taxpayer advocate.
Member, Third District
