Same Services, Different Name February 2022 Tax News

Speakers’ Bureau will now be known as Education and Outreach

We’re kicking off the New Year with a fresh new name. The Taxpayers’ Rights Advocate’s Office recently evaluated their services and updated the Speakers’ Bureau name to more accurately reflect current activities performed by the bureau. We changed our Speakers’ Bureau name to Education and Outreach and updated the website and email address.

Education and outreach play important roles to effectively communicate information to taxpayers, tax professionals, and other external stakeholders. Our team of expert presenters provide nonprofit organizations (including tax professionals), community groups, and government-funded educational institutions with specific information about California tax matters. We typically offer presentations to groups of 25 or more to speak on topics such as California Tax Updates, and Forms of Ownership – for small businesses.

Due to the pandemic, and state mandated meeting limitation, we are currently providing virtual presentations only. However, we look forward to a return to in person events. You may submit a request for your event through our email address at EducationandOutreach@ftb. Be sure to include the following information:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Organization
  • Event’s organizer: name, date, location and address
  • Event date and time, and the speaker’s time
  • Requested topic(s)
  • Number of attendees
  • Materials/biography deadlines
  • Special requirements
