The California Board of Equalization (BOE) announced that Coalinga will be among the areas visited by staffers for compliance checks.
The BOE’s Statewide Compliance & Outreach Program (SCOP) visits non-residential retail businesses to educate business operators about the BOE, its tax and fee and programs, and also checks compliance to ensure businesses are not selling or leasing tangible personal property without a seller’s permit.
The BOE has found that more than 98 percent of California businesses that receive SCOP visits are operating with the correct permits. However, noncompliance contributes to more than $2 billion in uncollected sales and use taxes that make up part of the state’s “tax gap”— the difference between the amount of taxes owed and the amount paid.
Letters were sent to taxpayers of upcoming visits to the 93210 Coalinga area code, as well as more than a dozen more areas around the state.
