Business Property Statements can now be filed quickly and easily online at www.calbpsfile.org using the e-SDR system.
Small business filers with one or a few locations may file the following forms online: 571-L, 571-R, 571-A or 571-F. Statements are completed one at a time by filling in the blanks. The system does all the calculations for you. It also allows you to save a statement and come back later to complete it. You will get a confirmation number with a date and time stamp when you submit the statement. You do not need to buy any special software to file online.
How to get started. Go online to www.calbpsfile.org and click on the >> e-SDR user button on the left. Enter your Account Number and Business ID Number (BIN) to begin. Your Account Number and BIN are located at the top right corner of your property statement.
