Important Message:
In order to perform basic maintenance on the BOE website, the system may be unavailable for Online Services access Sunday 1/29/2017 between 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m., Pacific Time. This maintenance should not cause any disruptions in services, however, if unexpected issues are encountered, you may experience up to a 30 minute interruption in connectivity near the times noted above. This message will be removed after the maintenance has been completed. Since this is regularly scheduled downtime, online participants should be aware that the BOE will not accept the participant's inability to submit a timely filing because of this downtime as a valid reason for granting relief of any penalty and/or interest that may result from a late filing.


Dear Permit Holder:

As of July 1, 2017 the permit, audit, and collections function of the Board of Equalization will move to a new agency under the Governor's Office.

To ensure you get the latest information we encourage you to sign up. There will be two new tax and fee departments, one as mentioned for audit and collection functions, and another other for hearing tax appeals. As policies become refined we will keep you up to speed. It's important that the transition is as seamless as possible for you.

My website will include updates as they occur: Sign up today for updates from my office. I want to thank you for doing business in California. Please feel free to email me at diane.harkey@boe.ca.gov with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. We will continue to keep you informed of tax incentive programs, events, and opportunities to help your business.

As always I am here to assist you with any matter you have and encourage you to take action now and subscribe for updates so we can stay in touch.

Taxpayer assistance and service remains the first priority in my office. We were honored to help resolve over 500 cases in our first two years. If you have any tax or fee issues, please call me at (949) 724-2578 or email me directly at diane.harkey@boe.ca.gov. It is an honor to be your taxpayer advocate serving as Chairwoman of the California State Board of Equalization. Thank you for your support and trust.
