Franchise Tax Board's Annual Taxpayers' Bill of Rights Hearing

Taxpayers are invited to attend the Franchise Tax Board's (FTB) annual Taxpayers' Bill of Rights hearing next week.

This year's hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on December 4, 2006, at the State Board of Equalization, 450 N Street, Room 121, Sacramento, California. The hearing provides taxpayers a chance to present proposals to change existing state income tax laws, and to improve the FTB's publications or services.

The FTB requests that taxpayers planning to make presentations submit a written statement before the hearing. Recommended changes to the tax laws should include the appropriate sections of the California Revenue and Taxation Code and the proposed change. Taxpayers may send their statements to:
