SoCal Brides: Effective Today LA County Sales Tax Increases

I read an article today on regarding the Measure R sales tax voter-approved increase to build transportation projects in LA. How will this affect those of you getting married? Well, if your reception will be held in LA County the sales tax hike will slightly increase your overall total for food and beverage. Keep in mind just because you signed the caterer’s contract 1-2 years ago when sales tax was at 8.25% it doesn’t mean that you are locked-in to that particular rate. They are obligated to increase it.

Here are the new sales tax rates:

Los Angeles County

Pico Rivera & South Gate – 10.75%
Avalon, El Monte, and Inglewood - 10.25%
All other areas – 9.75%

San Bernardino, Orange, and Ventura Counties remain the same.
