June 2009 - Striking Gold in California

The Striking Gold in California publication can help you inform your clients about starting up a small business. The IRS and California state tax agencies work together to educate small business owners about business tax obligations and direct them to appropriate sources within each agency for accurate information.

Every year in California, thousands of small businesses start up. Unfortunately, thousands of small businesses also go out of business each year. With this publication, you can inform your clients of what they need to know about taxes and their small business. The publication covers taxes and your client’s small business income, if your client has employees, if your client sells merchandise, and small business resources for your client.

The publication will be available soon. Go to and search for Striking Gold. For more information about starting and running a small business, visit the California Tax Service Center at
