CSEA is Your Voice in California 

CSEA advocates for the rights of both Enrolled Agents and taxpayers before all state and legislative and regulatory agencies. With a seat on each of the following state tax agency advisory boards, CSEA is constantly advocating for sound tax policy for California Enrolled Agents. We represent members before the:

  • Franchise Tax Board (FTB) 
  • Board of Equalization (BOE) 
  • Office of Tax Appeals (OTA)
  • California Department of Tax & Fee Administration (CDTFA)
  • Employment Development Department's (EDD) Small Business Employee Advisory Council (SBEAC)

This, along with our close relationship with each of one these agencies, give CSEA members an effective outlet to voice your concerns on the tax topics that matter to you. Find out more information about the state agencies and CSEA's involvement below.
