Abstract: Let $\Omega$ be a bounded domain in $\mathbb C^n$ such that $\Omega$ has piecewise smooth boudnary. We discuss the solvability of the Cauchy-Riemann equation

\begin{equation*}\overline{\partial}u=\alpha\quad \text{in}\quad \Omega\tag{0.1} \end{equation*}

where $\alpha$ is a smooth $\overline{\partial}$-closed $(p,q)$ form with coefficients $C^\infty$ up to the bundary of $\Omega$, $0\le p\le n$ and $1\le q\le n$. In particular, Equation (0.1) is solvable with $u$ smooth up to the boundary (for appropriate degree $q)$ if $\Omega$ satisfies one of the following conditions:

i)
$\Omega$ is the transversal intersection of bounded smooth pseudoconvex domains.
ii)
$\Omega=\Omega _1\setminus\overline\Omega _2$ where $\Omega _2$ is the union of bounded smooth pseudoconvex domains and $\Omega _1$ is a pseudoconvex convex domain with a piecewise smooth boundary.
iii)
$\Omega=\Omega _1\setminus\overline{\Omega}_2$ where $\Omega _2$ is the intersection of bounded smooth pseudoconvex domains and $\Omega _1$ is a pseudoconvex domain with a piecewise smooth boundary.
The solvability of Equation (0.1) with solutions smooth up to the boundary can be used to obtain the local solvability for $\overline{\partial}_b$ on domains with piecewise smooth boundaries in a pseudoconvex manifold.
