On January 1, 2017, the sales tax rate for the City of Long Beach increased from 9.0% to 9.75%. The 0.75% rate increase is a combination of the voter-approved Measure A 1% district tax and the expiration of the 0.25% statewide Proposition 30 sales tax, which had imposed a temporary 0.25% sales tax from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016. Then, on July 1, 2017, the new Los Angeles County Measure M will increase the City’s sales tax rate by .50% to 10.25%. Consumers in neighboring cities of Lakewood and Signal Hill will pay 1% less in sales tax for the same items as in Long Beach, and consumers in most Orange County cities will pay about 2% less than in Long Beach.
