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

    I believe the phrase is “Boo Frickin’ Hoo” :p

    Sales Tax in Canada – which to say nothing of Income Tax (Oh wait, I guess I just did)

    Of course, we get a lot of stuff “free” so there’s that to consider.

    Got the quote (From Dr Evil) wrong.

    But I found it — so it’s now here XD

    (Wow. That imbeds well – if you leave it for a second anyway)

    @ Debby, that doesn’t explain why Victorville is 8.750 % and Bakersfield is 8.250 %

    @Adonis, that’s thanks to the Anarchy Media Player plugin. It’s seldom used but great when it is.
