The California Board of Equalization (BOE) administers the Sales and Use Tax Law and adopts regulations that interpret the law. It hears appeals of business tax assessments, final Franchise Tax Board actions, and utility assessments. The BOE issues guidelines for certain other state taxes in the form of rules and regulations, sets the property values of utilities for tax purposes, sets the tax rate under various tax laws and guides, and evaluates the assessment practices of the state's 58 county assessors.


The BOE information line provides information about sales and use tax, personal income tax, employee taxes, property taxes, environmental fees, and excise taxes. Consumers may order tax regulations, pamphlets, and law guides from the Center.
