Sales Tax Rate Changes for California

Most of you are aware that the sales tax rate for California decreased by 1% starting on July 1, 2011. Well, if you didn’t know, now you do. It is important that you make this change in your accounting system, whether you use Sage MAS90, Sage MAS200, Sage BusinessWorks, CounterPoint v.7, CounterPoint SQL, or any other system. Many of our clients made the change themselves back on July 1st, or called for help. I’m still finding clients who haven’t gotten around to it yet. If you need help, email or call us. It’s not difficult, but you may not remember what to do since these changes happen infrequently. We can tell you how to make the change, or simply remotely connect and make the change for you.

One noteworthy item is that the special Farm tax credit has not changed. For instance, in Fresno County, the sales tax rate is still 2.725.  So in each county, whatever the special rate was prior to July 1st, is still the same rate now.
