Earlier this week the Board of Equalization (BOE) selected Member Fiona Ma as its new Chair and Member Diane Harkey as Vice Chair. The other Board members include Jerome Horton, George Runner, and State Controller Betty T. Yee.

The BOE meets monthly and is the only elected tax board in the country. They administer more than 30 tax and fee programs. During fiscal year 2014-15, the BOE managed $60.5 billion of revenue.

New Vice Chair Harkey stated, “I look forward to another productive year working with my colleagues on the Board to help individual taxpayers, small business owners and our larger employers navigate the maze that is California tax policy, so that we may stimulate job growth and create opportunities for all Californians.”

The BOE’s monthly meetings offer taxpayers and other interested parties opportunities to participate in the formulation of rules and regulations adopted by the Board.

We look forward to a continued good working relationship with the BOE.
