LA County Tax Rate

Sacramento – The half-cent sales tax increase approved by Los Angeles County voters in November 2016 – Measure M – took effect on July 1, 2017. The increase will apply to every city and unincorporated area of Los Angeles County, bringing the countywide sales and use tax rate to 9.25 percent.

“The sales tax increase enacted by the passage of Measure M, the Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan, proposes to improve freeway traffic flow and safety, repair streets and sidewalks, synchronize traffic signals, earthquake-retrofit bridges, expand public transit systems, create jobs, and keep fares affordable for seniors, students, and the disabled,” said Board of Equalization Member Jerome Horton.

The chart below lists the new tax rates for the cities of Avalon, Commerce, Compton, Culver City, Downey, El Monte, Inglewood, La Mirada, Long Beach, Lynwood, Pico Rivera, San Fernando, Santa Monica, South El Monte, and South Gate.
