City Tax Audits

If you do business in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Culver City, San Francisco, or any number of other cities throughout California, you have yet another tax return to file – your city tax return.

Even if you’re a small (less than $100,000 gross revenue) business, it pays to file a city return. Why? Because certain municipalities – Los Angeles, for example – exempt such businesses from tax, but only if they timely file a tax return.

Audits by a city are often challenging and difficult. For example, there is very little guidance for individuals being audited by the City of Los Angeles, which works in the City’s favor.

If you have been selected for a city tax audit – or if you’ve been notified that you owe city taxes and weren’t aware you had a filing obligation, call our office at (818) 480-3280 to set up an appointment. We’re here to help you through this process.
