Tax Relief For Business Owners Affected By Fire

Sacramento, CA — Business owners and feepayers impacted by the Rim Fire in Tuolumne County may request an extension to file their returns, relief of penalties and/or interest from some taxes and fees, or to replace copies of records lost to damage. That is the word from the California State Board of Equalization.

“We’re extremely grateful for our many brave firefighters, and our sympathy goes out to those who have lost homes and property,” said Board of Equalization Member George Runner. “Taxes are the last thing people should have to worry about at a time like this.

Tax and feepayers can go online to request relief from penalty or interest, and an extension of time to file a tax or fee return. Any tax or fee payer can use the online system to make their request for the tax and fee programs listed below.

Those without Internet access may call the BOE customer service center at 1-800-400-7115 (TTY: 711), Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
