Changes in Sales and Use Tax Rates for the City of Long Beach in California


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.
