Why Are State Assigned Codes Missing from Counties in CA for my Sales Tax Reports?


You want to know why the State Assigned Codes are missing from the County Level on your Sales Tax Return Reports for California.

  • As of April 1, 2016, the reporting for California changed to better represent the breakdown of taxes in local and special jurisdictions. 

  • As a result, the State Assigned codes for the County will be listed next to the CO LOCAL TAX jurisdiction. 

    • Example: State Assigned code for Alameda County is 01. This code will be next to the reporting for the local level now on the Sales and Seller's Use Tax Levels Report. 

Note: There is a new report that is specifically formatted to filing in CA.
