Small Business Employer Advisory Committee

The Small Business Employer Advisory Council (SBEAC) is a group of diverse associations representing small business employers throughout California. The committee provides us with recommendations on how to better service California’s small businesses and shares information with their members.

The SBEAC provides small business employers and our Tax Branch the chance to understand each other’s needs by addressing issues we both share. The SBEAC plays an important role on behalf of the small business employer community and has provided feedback to our Tax Branch on various tax policy and procedural efforts.

The committee serves to:

  • Provide our Tax Branch staff with a customer’s perspective on our programs and services.
  • Identify ways for our employment tax program to better serve the small business employer community.
  • Propose employer education and outreach programs.
