Tax rates go up Wednesday in some Northern California locales

New sales and use tax rates take effect Wednesday in a handful of Northern California cities, according to the state Board of Equalization.

BOE said voters approved rate increases in seven cities statewide.

In the Sacramento region, the tax rate in the city of Davis goes from 8 percent to 8.5 percent.

Other affected Northern California cities include Anderson (from 7.5 percent to 8 percent), Truckee (from 8.1 percent to 8.3 percent) and San Pablo (from 9 percent to 9.25 percent).

Voters in Woodland approved an extension of an already existing rate of 8.25 percent, which BOE said is scheduled to stay in effect until Sept. 30, 2022.

Tax rates vary in jurisdictions throughout California. BOE said consumers, retailers and others can check rates online at
