California Compliance Visits Continue

 SCOP teams to visit scenic Tahoe Vista.

They're intrepid. They're patient. They're the California State Board of Equalization Statewide Compliance and Outreach Program (SCOP) Teams! And they're on your side. Most businesses in California comply with tax laws.

The SCOP program was created to ensure that every business in the state of California understands and complies with state tax laws. Team members visit retailers in person, explain how to properly report sales and use tax, and answer questions. Since the program began in 2008, SCOP teams have visited hundreds of thousands of businesses from San Francisco to San Diego and beyond. Businesses are notified of upcoming visits by mail.

10,896 retailers in the following areas (with the listed ZIP codes) should look for letters in the coming weeks:

  • Alta (95701),
  • Applegate (95703),
  • Auburn (95602 and 95604),
  • Bellflower (90706),
  • Berkeley (94704),
  • Colfax (95713),
