CA Slammed by Sales Tax Hikes

19 cities and three counties, in addition to the state-wide increase


Sales taxes were raised in 19 cities and three counties throughout California Monday.

Municipalities from Carmel to Culver City are increasing their sales taxes anywhere from a quarter to a half-cent on every dollar of sales. The tax hikes were approved by the voters.

Officials said the raise is in addition to the quarter-percent statewide increase that began in Jan. 1, following the passage of Proposition 30.
