Finding accurate sales tax rates has always been a challenge especially when you have a mixture of county, city, and district taxes. The California SBE has just launched a great map-driven way to find the correct sales tax rate for a specific address. Here is the link to this very creative tool. I’m hoping more states will follow the lead and start using this type of technology to allow taxpayers to get the most accurate tax rate information.
