- May 17, 2013 | Gail Cole
State Board of Equalization are preparing to visit 9,943 more businesses in the coming weeks. Letters announcing the upcoming visits should be arriving at the businesses soon.
The following towns (with zip codes) are the lucky recipients of the upcoming door-to-door visits:
- Bakersfield (93301);
- Baldwin Park (91706);
- Boulder Creek (95006);
- Cambria (93428);
- Carpinteria (93013 and 93014);
- Culver City (90230 and 90231);
- North Hollywood (91601);

- San Juan Capistrano (92675 and 92691);
- Sutter Creek (95685); and
- Volcano (95689).
SCOP team members will not visit home-based businesses, and they will not ask about personal financial information. They will check to be sure businesses have seller’s permits and they will ask business-related questions. Their goal is to verify that all California businesses are complying with state tax laws and have the appropriate permits.
Past SCOP visits reveal that almost 98 percent of California businesses are in compliance. On the other hand, “under-reporting taxpayers, and the other two percent that are out of compliance, are among those responsible for more than $2 billion in uncollected taxes….” The goal of the visits is to close that tax gap.
Business owners with questions about the SCOP visits will find additional information at BOE SCOP.
