We have the solution! The California Tax Bootcamp (formerly known as CSTAR) will provide you with an intensive three-day bootcamp that will give you an in depth look at state tax audit and appeals, collections, policies and procedures. You’ll receive a unique opportunity to get down and dirty with real case studies led by experts from the Franchise Tax Board (FTB), the Board of Equalization (BOE), and the Employment Development Department (EDD) in one convenient location. We’ve done the research and you can’t find this program anywhere else!

You will receive tips from the FTB, EDD, and BOE to increase your understanding and competency in tax resolution at the state level, as will learn techniques through actual case studies.
