[fname], I want to let you know that due to voter approval of Proposition 30, the statewide sales and use tax rate will increase one quarter of one percent (0.25%) on January 1, 2013. The higher tax rate will apply for four years January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016.

For more information on this increase, give us a call or you can visit the California State Board of Equalization tax rate increase webpage. For a listing of tax rates, please visit our California City & County Sales & Use Tax Rates webpage.

In addition to the statewide sales and use tax rate increase, voters in some cities and counties approved a number of new or increased district taxes that will go into effect April 1, 2013. These new or increased district taxes will be sent to taxpayers in a separate notice.

Thanks
