Under the Morgan Property Taxpayers' Bill of Rights, the State Board of Equalization's Taxpayers' Rights Advocate has an educational role in providing education and instruction to local taxpayers to promote taxpayer understanding of property tax laws. The Taxpayers' Rights Advocate Office has created Information Sheets to make sure property owners in California know that exclusions and exemptions are available to them.
