The California Sales and Tax Use Department's website has information regarding sales tax in California, says the California State Board of Equalization. The Sales and Use Tax Department is the agency responsible for administering the state, local and district sales tax in the state of California.
The sales tax in California provides more than 80 percent of the revenue collected by the state, says the California State BOE. The Sales and Use Tax Department's website includes resources for both individual and business tax payers.
Individuals looking to obtain a permit to sell, trying to find information on new permits and licenses, or seeking details on how to become a temporary seller in the state of California can find that information on the Sales and Use Tax Department's website. The website also allows taxpayers to file their tax returns, or find information on different tax rates, says the California State BOE.
Businesses can find various resources on the business tax law, obtain different sales tax forms, or learn about any proposed changes to sales tax regulations. If a business finds it needs to dispute any penalties imposed on its business, the Sales and Use Tax Department's website has information regarding appeals, says the California State BOE.
