The California State Board of Equalization recently issued a special notice regarding a potential sales and use tax rate increase on January 1, 2013. Cal. Spec. Notice: Sales and Use Tax Rate Could Increase on Jan. 1, 2013 (Bd. of Equalization Oct. 2012). The notice explains that there could be a one quarter of one percent (.25%) increase in the sales and use tax rate if California voters approve an initiative, Proposition 30, on the ballot during the general election on November 6, 2012. If passed, Proposition 30 will increase California's sales and use tax rate from 7.25% to 7.50% beginning January 1, 2013.

If Proposition 30 is approved, it will not affect or change the rate of any special district taxes. The statewide rate increase will be in addition to any special district taxes imposed in those cities and counties that have approved district taxes.

The Board of Equalization will provide additional guidance in November if California voters approve Proposition 30.
