The California sales and use tax rate will increase by 1%* effective April 1, 2009. To determine the sales and use tax rate for your area please see the Special Notice published by the California State Board of Equalization.

The 1% sales and use tax increase will expire on July 1, 2012 if voters approve the proposed Budget Stabilization constitutional amendment in the statewide special election on May 19, 2009. If the amendment is rejected by voters, the sales and use tax increase will expire a year early, on July 1, 2011.

* The sales and use tax rates will increase by more than 1% in cities or counties that have a voter approved local district tax rate.
