SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Several cities will see increased sales and use taxes take effect July 1.

Most of the increases were approved by California voters in the November 2020 election, the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration said.

State sales tax “applies to all retail sales of goods and merchandise, except those sales specifically exempted by law,” according to the administration.

Use tax generally applies to storage, use, or other consumption in California of goods purchased from retailers in non-sales tax transactions.

The use tax may also apply to purchases shipped to a California consumer from another state, including purchases made by mail order, telephone or Internet, the administration said.

Here’s a breakdown of where the increases are coming in and by how much:

Fuel costs are also expected to rise next week when the state gasoline tax increases by 0.60 cents. The automatic increase is due to Senate Bill 1, a legislative package that was signed into law in 2017 that gradually increases the fuel excise tax each year to help in part fund road and bridge repairs. .
