The California statewide sales and use tax rate could increase by 0.25% for four years from January 1, 2013, to December 31, 2016, if California voters approve Proposition 30. This would increase the current rate from 7.25% to 7.5% effective January 1, 2013. Proposition 30 appears on the November 6, 2012 general election ballot. The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) will provide additional guidance in November if Proposition 30 is approved.
