I can't believe my Local sales tax is at 9.75. :smt013
9.75% Sales Tax Rate in the
City of El Cajon Starting April 1



On November 4, 2008, El Cajon voters approved Proposition J, a ½-cent sales tax measure for a twenty-year period to provide funding to preserve general City services. The General Fund is used to pay for police and fire protection, building inspections, streets, parks, recreation activities and other essential City services.

On February 19, 2009, the State of California increased the base sales tax rate by 1.00%. Both of these increases are effective April 1, 2009 making El Cajon's sales and use tax 9.75%.

A copy of the resolution that placed the measure on the November ballot in 2008 is below for your review, along with the official ordinance.

That is ridiculous. Almost 10%. 15-20% out of a paycheck, 5% for a vehicle and that is every time it sales not just the 1st time, 2% for property, road and privileged taxes, school taxes, communication taxes, hotel taxes, flight taxes,,,cheez whiz, we need to protest!!! Oh yah, I am, tomorrow!

Absolutely absurd. Our local sales tax burden is 8.25%, but we have no state income tax. When you add California income tax on top of your 10% sales tax on top of your state "fees" you might want to consider moving to the great Republic of Texas. :smt003

9.25% sales tax across the board
11.25% sales tax at hotels, motels and restaurants
Can't find hard numbers on it, but iirc sales tax on alcohol and alcoholic drinks is 13%.

The down side of that is your high property tax. The government has got to have your money one way or the other in order to do whatever it is they do.

Rev, I have no problem moving to TX. I have told Kev I am game to move where ever. :smt002
They asked all the mangers where they would be willing to relocate to, and he put in TX, NV, AZ.
We would only do it if he got his own building.

If Texas follows through with cessation from the Union, I'll move there! Along with many others, I'm sure.

When you buy a shirt for $20, if local sales tax is 10%, the total is $22.00. Local sales tax is added to everything you purchase. Some states do not tax food, while others do. Restaurant taxes are sometimes more than the local sales tax.

In this time "the local "is county, or state, or a big city? what is the frontier of this tax?

Yes balage, truck gets taxed too. Say goodbye to thousands of dollars! $$$ all gone to state. I think they charged me around 1,200 to 1,500.00 for my truck.

That would be $22.00. I made a mistake on our state tax, it is 8.75% not 8.5%.
