Why was line B2 not filled in on Schedule B of my California return?


You have reviewed your CA BOE 401A2 return and found that line B2, total 1% local tax on sales made and merchandise consumed at your permanent place of business in California, was not filled in.


  • Avalara Returns
  • California


  • This line is for the 1% local tax that would be calculated for your registered location within the state if California.

  • Avalara must be notified if this line is required for your business as not all companies are required to use this field.

    • While we do suggest adding locations into AvaTax, this is not a form of notifying Avalara as we do not have a way to verify if those locations are registered with the state.

    • Please contact Support to notify Avalara of this requirement for your business.
