About Our California Sales Tax Calculator

california sales tax calculator by state rate from zip2tax

At the state level, the California sales tax rate is 7.25%. However, when trying to estimate costs to charge customers or clients, there’s more that needs to be considered. Local sales taxes may apply to a specific transaction on top of the state sales tax costs. Because of this, you’ll need to consider the California sales tax rate by ZIP code when using our California state tax calculator.
