California to increase Sales Tax during the pandemic
California increases Sales Tax during the pandemic. The tax rate changes apply only within some city or county limits. The new tax rates, tax codes, acronyms, and expiration dates will be available to view and download here as a spreadsheet prior to July 1, 2020, on our California City & County Sales & Use Tax Rates webpage
To find the specific tax rate for your area or business location, go to Find a Sales and Use Tax Rate by Address. The new rates will be displayed on July 1, 2020. You may also call our Customer Service Center at 1‑800‑400‑7115 (CRS:711). Customer service representatives are available to assist you Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Pacific time), except state holidays.
The sales and use tax rate is not the same in all California locations. While the standard statewide rate is currently 7.25 percent, the total sales and use tax rate is higher in areas where there are voter-approved special transactions (sales) and use taxes. In those areas (districts), the total tax rate includes the standard statewide tax rate plus the district tax rate (which varies from district to district). If you are engaged in business in a special taxing jurisdiction, you must report district taxes on Schedule A of your sales and use tax return.
