Voter-approved sale tax rate increases will take effect April 1 in many areas of the state, the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration notified retailers in a special notice.

In 11 cities, the new tax rate will be 10.25 percent. Ten of the cities are in Los Angeles County (Bell Gardens, Bellflower, City of Commerce, Lancaster, Lomita, Palmdale, San Fernando, Signal Hill, South El Monte, and West Hollywood). The remaining 10.25 percent city is El Cerrito, in Contra Costa County.

Consumers in Turlock will have a tough time estimating the cost of sales tax without a calculator, as the new rate is 8.625 percent. They may be used to dealing with non-round numbers, however, as the new rate replaces the current rate of 7.875 percent.
