The Best Way to File a Protest

Has your client recently received a Notice of Proposed Assessment for added tax resulting from our audit examination? Does your client plan to file a protest? We offer a new way to file the protest of an audit assessment.

We now have a fax number which allows you and your clients to submit a protest of an audit Notice of Proposed Assessment by fax. The letter of protest should still contain the information outlined in the "protest procedure" section on the enclosure mailed with the audit notice; however, the letter of protest can now be submitted to the following fax number:

Protest Control Desk Fax Number:  916.364.2754

This fax number is a new tool to assist you and your clients in filing a protest in a timely manner. However, you may continue to submit your protest by regular mail to:

PROTEST CONTROL DESK MS F340
FRANCHISE TAX BOARD
PO BOX 1286
RANCHO CORDOVA CA 95741-1286
