Transactions and Use Taxes: Updated Report

March 30, 2017
On April 1, more than 50 new local sales taxes, which were approved by voters in November 2016, will go into effect in California.
These “Transactions and Use Taxes” added on to the 7.25 percent statewide base sales and use tax rate, are now in effect in 32 counties and 176 cities and generate over $6 billion annually, mostly for countywide transportation purposes but increasingly for city general services including police fire, parks and libraries.
The full update of the status and history of local add-on sales taxes in California is available through CaliforniaCityFinance.com.
