Each state tax agency will take the stage and address specifically prepared questions about agency functions. This will be followed by a true Q & A forum where attendees, who are in the trenches working with taxpayers trying to navigate the tax system, can provided valuable insight for the four agencies on how their programs are working. 

STALM's Powerful Value

  • Receive direct phone numbers for the “top brass” at the four agencies
  • Problem-solve in real-time with a smorgasbord of agency executives available to address your issues and concerns
  • A unique opportunity to get face time with people in the know and actually discuss issues that matter to you

This invaluable event not only exemplifies the strong collaboration between CSEA and California’s three state tax agencies, but it models how a group of like-minded people can affect change.
