Writing!
For your protection, it is best to get tax advice in writing.

Requests for written advice can be emailed to the Board of Equalization (BOE) at www.boe.ca.gov/info/email.html or mailed directly to the BOE field office nearest you (addresses are listed on the reverse).
The Sales and Use Tax Law can be complex, and you are encouraged to put your tax questions in writing. Not only will that give us more information on which to base our advice to you, it may protect you from owing tax, interest, or penalties if we should give you erroneous information. Such protection is not provided for advice given to you verbally, in person, or on the telephone. The Sales and Use Tax Law (section 6596) provides that you can obtain relief from tax and any penalty or interest charges if you fail to report tax on a transaction because you relied on erroneous written advice from the BOE. For this relief to apply, the following conditions must be met:
YoumusthavewrittentotheBOEfortaxadvice,andyourrequestmusthave escribed d the specific facts and circumstances of the activity or transaction (if someone writes on your behalf, you must be identified as the taxpayer to whom the advice applies); and TheBOEmusthaverespondedinwritingandstatedwhetherthedescribedactivityor transaction was subject to tax or stated the conditions under which tax would apply.





If you have received written advice from the BOE and request tax relief under section 6596, it cannot be granted if, following our letter of advice: Wewrotetoyouandmodifiedorrescindedourearlieradvice,andyourtaxliabilityisfora transaction that occurred after such notification; or
Therehasbeenachangeinthelaworafinaldecisionofacourt,whichrendersourearlier written advice no longer valid.

In addition to written advice, the BOE offers other resources to help you understand the law:

All of these avenues are designed to help you better understand your rights and responsibilities as a taxpayer and are available on our website at www.boe.ca.gov or by calling our Taxpayer Information Section at 800-400-7115.
