Has anybody else noticed the sales tax rate is down by 1% in LA County? The city of LA tax rate is now 8.75% and I believe it used to be 9.75%. Did a temporary tax hike expire?

That clears it up, thanks! It will be interesting to see if the reduction of tax revenues per purchase is offset by increased overall purchasing. I'm thinking it won't be given the latest economic trends.

Wow...what the heck? It was 6.5% in LA when we moved to Texas in 1989 (where it was 8.25% - made my mom so mad!)...and it's still 8.25% here...9%??!!!!! Moderator cut: crude

It was probably lowered so Tony's beloved "undocumented" have more money to send home in remittances.

Yes we can!

Tony's the Mayor. The state legislature was behind this recent redcution (b/c it was a temporary hike they passed in 2009). Nothing at all to do with Tony.

Try actually getting to a library once in a while and read what is posted.

Do you not know that Villar is strongly connected to the state legislature? Try learning the basics of CA politics before implying I'm naive on such topics.

Villaraigosa was Speaker of the state Assembly in the LATE 1990's. The reduction in the STATE sales tax is what this thread referenced.

If you want to attack Tony for ticket scandals (or some other city related matter) so be it. But pinning him directly for what the state legislature does or does not do is pointless drible.
