Sales tax rate map released for California
The state Board of Equalization released a sales tax rate map on Thursday allowing California residents to view tax rates across the state.
The map is organized by color, with varying shades or green, yellow and red representing different tax rates.
“California has more than 200 sales tax rate jurisdictions, which can be confusing for taxpayers,” Board of Equalization member George Runner said in a written statement. “Our new map provides a picture of these rates and should serve as a helpful visual aid for taxpayers.”
The map is complemented by the Board’s tax rate lookup tool that enables taxpayers to find a sales tax rate for a specific address.
The highest sales tax rate in California is 10 percent in the cities of La Mirada, Pico Rivera and South Gate in Los Angeles County.
