On Wednesday, The California Channel will offer live broadcasting of the annual meeting between the California State Board of Equalization (BOE) and county assessors, representing each of California’s 58 counties. The broadcast will be offered on cable and the Cal Channel’s website at 10 a.m.

The BOE is required by law to hold meetings with assessors at least once a year to discuss issues relating to the administration of assessment and taxation laws, and to promote uniformity of procedure in property tax matters throughout the state.

This year’s meeting will include panel discussions on embedded software and a split-roll property tax.

The meeting will be archived online and available for viewing as VOD the following day; and will be rebroadcast on Friday October 21 at 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time. The Cal Channel’s broadcast schedule is available online at www.calchannel.com.

The five-member California State Board of Equalization is a publicly elected tax board. The Board of Equalization collects more than $50 billion annually in taxes and fees supporting state and local government services.  It hears business tax appeals, acts as the appellate body for franchise and personal income tax appeals, and serves a significant role in the assessment and administration of property taxes.  For more information on other taxes and fees in California, visitwww.taxes.ca.gov.

The California Channel is an independent, non-profit public affairs cable network governed by California’s cable television industry, and modeled after the national C-SPAN service. The channel’s primary mission is to provide Californians direct access to “gavel-to-gavel” proceedings of the California Legislature, and other forums where public policy is discussed, debated, and decided – all without editing, commentary, or analysis and with a balanced presentation of viewpoints.
