New Sales and Use Tax Rates
Effective April 1, 2011

Voters in 13 cities in California have approved new district taxes (transactions and use taxes) that become effective April 1, 2011.  The new rates apply only within each city’s incorporated limits. The tax rates outside the incorporated city limits will remain the same.

In addition, the City of Scotts Valley Transactions and Use Tax (SVGF) will end on March 31, 2011, resulting in a tax rate decrease within the city limits of Scotts Valley.

In Sonoma County, the countywide Sonoma County Open Space Authority (SCOS) 0.25 percent district tax will end on March 31, 2011. Beginning April 1, 2011, the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation & Open Space District (SAPD) 0.25 percent district tax will take effect. Therefore, the tax rates throughout Sonoma County (exception: City of Santa Rosa) will remain the same.

The table below summarizes the new sales and use tax rates.
