CalCPA Action Alert
Immediate Action Requested 

5% Sales Tax on Accounting Services 

AB 9 (Coto) was amended Monday to require that sales
taxes be collected for accounting, legal, engineering,
consulting and other professional services. 

Revenues would be used to fund increases in education.
CalCPA and others are opposing this new tax for a
number of reasons including: 

Negative impacts on small businesses that cannot
afford to hire employees to provide these services; 
Increased costs to consumers for tax preparation
Additional administrative burdens for small businesses
that will have to collect these taxes; and 
Increased costs to state government for administering
this new tax. 
The bill would encourage use of out-of-state
professionals who would not be required to collect the
sales tax. 

AB 9 will be heard by the Assembly Revenue and
Taxation Committee on Monday, April 25. 

Please immediately write, call and fax the members of
the Revenue and Taxation Committee as well as your own
Assembly Member. 

Letters in your own words are essential.
