Sales Tax Information

In California sales and use tax is administered by the Board of Equalization. The mission of the Board is to serve the public through fair, effective, and efficient tax administration.

Created in 1879 by a constitutional amendment, the Board of Equalization currently administers four general areas: sales and use taxes, property taxes, special taxes and the tax appellate program.

Board-administered revenues support hundreds of state and local government programs and services, including schools and colleges, hospitals and health care services, criminal justice, correctional, and social welfare programs, law enforcement, consumer services, natural resource management, and transportation and housing programs.

Please visit the Board of Equalization website for more information on sales and use tax information.
