e-SDR Questions and Answers

Can anyone electronically file the 571-L Form?

Only those who received a letter with their 571-L Form informing them they are eligible to file using eSDR may do so in the current year. Ventura County is working to increase the number of eligible filers for the future.

Do I have to print a copy of my eSDR electronic filing?

You do not need to print a copy of the eSDR filing, nor send a copy back to the Assessor’s Office. However, you may want to print and keep a copy for your own records.

Do I have to send back the Paper 571-L Form I received?

Do not send back the Paper 571-L Form if you electronically filed the 571-L Form using eSDR and received a confirmation number confirming your filing. Keep a copy of the confirmation number as proof of your filing.

Do I need special software to use eSDR?

Yes, you need Adobe Reader, which most computers have. If you do not have Adobe Reader it can be downloaded free from Adobe.

I can't log on to my account on the eSDR site

To log on to your account on the eSDR site, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to http://www.calbpsfile.org
  2. Click on the pink e-SDR button (e-File on SDR)
  3. On the log in screen, you will see two fields: Account # and BIN
  4. In the Account # field, type in your account number as indicated on your BPS form with no spaces or dashes.

Will the costs that I reported last year appear on the eSDR statement?

Last year's cost will not appear if this is your first year filing electronically through eSDR. If you file using eSDR in the current year, you prior years costs will appear next year.
