The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration sent a reminder last week to L.A. County residents that the Measure H sales tax increase will go into effect October 1. Voters approved the increase during the March 7 election, so that money can go toward alleviating and preventing  homelessness here. The increase is .25 percent, according to CDTFA officials with some exceptions.


“The .25 percent tax will not be imposed in the cities of Compton, La Mirada, Long Beach, Lynwood, Pico Rivera, Santa Monica, and South Gate because doing so would cause the rate in those cities to exceed the 10.25 percent maximum tax rate allowed under the law in Los Angeles County,” they said.


“ If and when an existing tax in one of these cities expires, the Measure H tax will be imposed in that city immediately.”
