Why is the State Rate for CA lower than the state website?

Overview

When I look on the California BOE website the State rate is listed 1 percent higher than Avalara. (CA BOE shows 7.5%, Avalara shows CA state rate as 6.5%)

Environment

Avalara Avatax

Resolution

  • Avalara shows the mandatory 1% for every County in CA separate from the 6.5% State rate because it is reported on its own return which is why we have it separated out.
    • The State tends to include that 1% when they talk about the State rate.
