California Sales and Use Tax Rate to Decrease in 2017

On Behalf of | Nov 10, 2016 | BOE |

The temporary statewide sales and use tax increase approved through California’s Proposition 30 expires on December 31, 2016. Effective January 1, 2017, the state sales and use tax rate in California will decrease by 0.25% to the new rate of 7.25%. The California State Board of Equalization notes, however, that in many cities and counties the total tax rate will be higher due to local voter-approved district taxes.
