New sales and use tax rates took effect on April 1, as a result of voter-approved initiatives in several cities and counties. The tax rate changes for the selected cities apply only within the indicated municipal limits. The countywide tax rate increases apply to all cities and unincorporated areas within the county.
To find the tax rate in your area or business location, visit the BOE website at boe.ca.gov and click on the Find a Tax Rate by Address link to find the tax rate for a specific address. The new tax rates were available on this website on April 1. You may also call the BOE customer service center at (800) 400-7115 (TTY:711) to find your local tax rates. Representatives are available to assist you weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific Time), except state holidays.
