Striking Gold in California

Striking Gold in California is an educational tool for small business owners that provides basic tax information from the Internal Revenue Service and the three California tax agencies, all in one place.

Every year in California, thousands of new small businesses start up. Unfortunately, thousands also go out of business each year. Understanding your tax obligations can help you be successful. The IRS and California's tax agencies are working together to help you understand what those obligations are. Striking Gold in California describes each agency's role and directs you to the appropriate resources within those agencies.

The Striking Gold in California booklet provides easy-to-use information on income, sales and use, and employment taxes in an easy-to-read format.
