FTB's Annual Taxpayers' Bill of Rights Hearing

Taxpayers will have an opportunity to propose changes to state income tax laws at the Franchise Tax Board's (FTB) annual Taxpayers' Bill of Rights hearing later this month.

The hearing allows taxpayers a chance to present proposals to change existing state income tax laws and/or improve FTB's publications or services.

This year’s hearing will follow the FTB Board meeting, which will start at 9:30 on November 26 at the State Board of Equalization, 450 N Street, Room 121, Sacramento, California.

“This is a great opportunity for Californians to effect change,” said State Controller and Chair of the FTB Kathleen Connell. “I encourage concerned citizens to participate in this forum to let their voices and suggestions be heard.”

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:
