SACRAMENTO – Betty T. Yee, Chair of the California State Board of Equalization Customer Service and Administrative Efficiency Committee announced May 1 the launch of the open BOE data portal. The data portal consolidates a range of historical data, such as taxable sales in California and information for other tax and fee programs, some currently available on the BOE website, into one uniform view with easy access.
“Californians from all walks of life will now find our public tax and fee data more accessible,” said Board of Equalization Member George Runner. “At the same time, we continue to safeguard the privacy of all confidential taxpayer information.”
The board enthusiastically endorsed open BOE, which allows users to easily download or export the data into various formats, including charts and graphs. Users may view, export, redistribute and republish this information. The data portal eases access to aggregate tax, revenue and expenditure data by the public. For example, media outlets, academic institutions and local governments may use the portal for background, research, and planning, as well as for examining the BOE’s activities and operations. The portal does not provide access to confidential taxpayer information.
