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.

Thank you for visiting the JoinCalifornia political archive. Since 2004, has grown into the largest online archive of California election results. We work continually to keep our candidate biographies updated with current information. Our records currently include state legislative races since 1898 and statewide and federal offices back to 1849. This information includes 14,039 candidates running in 25,682 races in 534 elections.

As always, please keep in mind that this is a work in progress and we always appreciate you letting us know if anything doesn't quite look right.

Thanks again for visiting,
