Non-Profit and Faith Based Organization Tax Compliance Resources

Many non-profit and faith based organizations that serve our communities are unaware of the state’s complex tax rules. To rectify this problem the Board of Equalization has provided online resources to help these organizations better understand and comply with tax rules.

If you still have questions after viewing the Board of Equalization website and seminars please contact Board Member Barbara Alby at (916) 445-2181 or
