California sales tax rises to almost 9 percent

For those of you not in California…
The Associated Press: California sales tax rises to almost 9 percent

Californians will start feeling the pain of the recently negotiated state budget fix on Wednesday, when a 1-percent increase in the state sales tax will force consumers to pay more for goods such as cars, furniture, laptops and toys.

Starting Wednesday, California’s sales tax will rise to 6 percent, bringing the average local sales tax rate to almost 9 percent ? one of the highest in the nation.

For me, in my area, that comes out to 9.5% – a little less if I shop in San Diego proper (8.75%) Find out about your area by visiting the Board of Equalization web site
