California Continues Door-to-Door Visits

Indirect Tax, ONESOURCE, Sales and Use Tax February 13, 2013

california-flag-bearThe California Board of Equalization (BOE) is continuing their door-to-door visits sending letters to 12,342 business owners notifying them of upcoming visits from Statewide Compliance and Outreach Program (SCOP) teams.  The visits are intended to educate retailers about properly reporting sales and use tax.  The program started in 2008 and in that time SCOP teams have visited more than 353,000 business verifying that they are registered and remitting the appropriate sales and use tax.

Through this effort, the BOE has found that nearly 98% of California businesses are properly registered and are paying the correct taxes and fees.  This door-to-door approach is intended to reduce the state’s tax gap which is estimated to be more than $2 billion in uncollected taxes.
