Lead-Acid Battery Fees Registration

Back in December we sent members a notice regarding a new lead battery acid fee (see below). At the time we did not have much information on how the program would work but additional information has just became available.

The lead-acid battery fees registration is available starting today March 20, 2017. In addition, a Tax and Fee Guide has been posted to the California Board of Equalization (BOE) website. Go to http://www.boe.ca.gov/industry/lead-acid_battery_fees.html to view this information and register with the BOE.

The BOE has also released a two page guidance on how this program will work. Please go to https://www.boe.ca.gov/pdf/l489.pdf for additional information. Please note that this does NOT include new batteries that come in farm equipment, atv’s, autos, etc. from the factory but only REPLACEMENT batteries.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at the Far West office if you have any questions, concerns or need further information.
