New California sales tax has landed to LA County on April fool day. 9.25%. By Summer times, it will go up to 9.3%. I haven't seen the actual impact in the market places, the living expenses will increase, but the consumers may not feel the increasing because it is the regular spending, for example, if spending $200, the increasing amount is $2, it won't make a strong feel of the overpaying. I just wish California can use these tax money in a very smart way. SAVE CALIFORNIA. God bless California!
