How Can I Express My Opinion?
Citizen Participation

Public involvement is important for good decision making. We encourage citizen participation in issues that affect tax professionals and their customers. Public involvement may take several forms, from simply receiving notices of Tax Board activities, to appearances at public meetings or by formal participation in cases. See public meetings or contact our office via e-mail at tax.bd@state.or.us.

Attend a Public Meeting

The Board holds public meetings about five times a year. Meetings are not generally scheduled during tax preparation season. Most meetings are held in the large conference room of the Morrow Crane Building located in Salem at 3218 Pringle Road SE, Ste. #120 (map). Once a year the Tax Board will meet in another area of Oregon to give licensees throughout the state the opportunity to meet and address the Board. Public meeting notices and agendas are posted on our Web site approximately one week in advance of the meeting.  
Meeting minutes are also available on our Web site. 

The Tax Board allows time at each meeting for public comment. Members of the public may bring up any subject related to tax preparation regulated by the Board, or may comment on matters scheduled for Board action. Public comment forms are available at the meetings for those who wish to speak.

Written comments may be submitted to the Tax Board office prior to public meetings. You may submit your comment by fax (503) 378-2757, e-mail tax.bd@state.or.us, or mail them to 3214 Pringle Rd SE, Ste #120, Salem, OR, 97302.
Note: Sign language interpreters and other special accommodations are available with at least 48 hours advance notice. Please call us at (503) 378-4034 to arrange for meeting accommodations.
