Before you can legally operate your business in California, you must register your business with the California State Board of Equalization (BOE). The BOE is responsible for collecting taxes and fees from businesses operating in the state. To register your business, you will need to fill out a Business Tax Registration form and submit it to the BOE.
There are two types of business taxes that you may be required to pay:
-Sales and use tax
You will need to determine which taxes apply to your business and register accordingly. The BOE website has a handy Tax Rate Finder tool to help you determine the tax rates for your business.
Once you have registered your business, you will need to obtain a seller’s permit. This permit allows you to collect sales tax from your customers and remit it to the BOE. You can apply for a seller’s permit online, by mail, or in person at a BOE office.
Once you have registered your business and obtained a seller’s permit, you will need to file tax returns and make tax payments to the BOE on a regular basis. The frequency of tax returns and payments will depend on the type of taxes you are required to pay.
The BOE website (boe.ca.gov) has a wealth of information and resources to help you comply with California’s business tax laws. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the requirements before you start your business.
