(Victor Valley)– Individuals and businesses with ideas or concerns about the administration and oversight of California’s business and property taxes are invited to attend the Board of Equalization’s (BOE) annual Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights hearings in Sacramento on May 22, 2014.
“We invite California taxpayers to share with us their ideas for how government can serve them better,” said Board of Equalization Member George Runner. “We welcome taxpayer feedback not just at these hearings but also every day of the year.”
The Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights hearings begin at approximately 1:30 p.m. at the following location:
When: Thursday, May 22, 2014
Where: Board of Equalization Headquarters Building
1st Floor Board Room, Room 121
450 N Street
Sacramento, California 95814
Individuals interested in making a presentation at either the Business Taxpayers’ or the Property Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights Hearing are invited to contact the BOE Taxpayers’ Rights Advocate Office by calling toll-free 1-888-324-2798, or by email at www.boe.ca.gov/info/emailtra.htm.
Enacted in January 1989, the Harris-Katz California Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights requires the BOE to ensure that the rights of California taxpayers are protected during the assessment and collection of sales and uses taxes. The Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights was expanded in 1993 to include special tax programs such as excise, fuel, and alcohol taxes, and the Morgan Property Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights was added in 1994. The Board is required by law to conduct public Bill of Rights hearings annually.
