New sales and use tax rates take effect Wednesday in 12 California cities as a result of voter-approved initiatives, the state Board of Equalization said.
Among them is Rancho Cordova, whose sales and use tax rate is increasing from 8 percent to 8.5 percent. In the Butte County town of Paradise, the rate jumps from 7.5 percent to 8 percent.
Other Northern California cities with rate increases are Benicia, El Cerrito, Pinole, Richmond, Red Bluff and Sausalito.
