BOE Launches eReg (electronic registration) service
Submitted By Yating Campbell
Starting or doing business in California is now easier with eReg, the Board of Equalization's (BOE) new secure electronic registration system. The user-friendly service offers a convenient, fast and free way to apply online for a permit, license or account.
"BOE remains committed to improving taxpayer experience. With eReg, taxpayers can be confident they have necessary permits and licenses required for their business," said Betty T. Yee, First District Board of Equalization Member.
Beginning June 18, 2012, users can access eReg from the BOE's secure website, around the clock, to apply for a seller's permit, pay use tax and register for other tax and fee programs. Answer a few simple questions and the system guides the user through the process of acquiring relevant permits, licenses or accounts. If users do not have the time to finish the application process, they can save it and complete it later.
Additionally, eReg allows users to register for a special tax or fee account such as International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) accounts and Cigarette and Tobacco Products Retailer's Licenses; add a new business location; easily make use tax payments; view the status of your account(s) online; and access helpful reference materials, forms, and publications.
