Board of Equalization Shake-up
In the largest change to California’s constitutional offices since the office of Insurance Commissioner became elected in 1990, the Legislature recently voted to transfer almost all of the authority from the Board of Equalization.
The Board, which was created in 1879, oversaw the collection of California's sales tax and a variety of other taxes and fees as well as appeals of state taxes.
The tax collection functions will be assigned to the new Department of Tax and Fee Administration (already being called "TFA" by staff) and much of the appellate functions will be transferred to administrative law judges.
