Business owners impacted by Northern California wildfires may request various forms of emergency tax relief, the California State Board of Equalization announced Wednesday.
Those in fire-stricken areas can request an extension to file tax returns, ask for relief from penalties or interest on some taxes and fees, or request replacement copies of lost or damaged records.
To request relief, business owners go online to www.boe.ca.gov (search under “Online Services”) or call (800) 400-7115 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
BOE said it was responding to Gov. Jerry Brown’s Aug. 2 emergency proclamation citing the impact of wildfires in El Dorado, Amador, Butte, Humboldt, Lassen, Madera, Mariposa, Mendocino, Modoc, Shasta and Siskiyou counties.
