Although taxpayers in California face unique challenges that can give rise to various commercial tax controversies, the Taxpayer Bill of Rights provides them certain protections. The Taxpayer Bill of Rights is administered by the California State Board of Equalization (BOE) and affords certain rights to taxpayers in California regarding penalties, audits, and other tax problems.
During a tax audit, the taxpayer is entitled to an honest review of their account books. If the taxpayer disagrees with the findings made by the auditor, then their attorney can meet with the auditor to try to negotiate a solution. If a solution can’t be negotiated, the taxpayer can pursue an appeal.
