Sales Tax Rates To Increase For Truckee And Davis


The cities of Davis and Truckee have new sales tax rates starting Wednesday and Woodland's rate has been extended.

The state Board of Equalization says the new sales tax rates in Davis and Truckee were approved by voters.

In Davis, the sales tax moves up to 8.5 percent with the additional revenue used for general city services.

In Truckee, the rate bumps up to 8.375 percent, after voters approved Measure R in June. The money from the additional one-quarter percent would pay for the maintenance, construction and upkeep of biking and hiking trails and natural, open-space areas. The increase would continue until 2020.

An extension of the current 8.25 percent sales tax rate in Woodland was approved by voters in June.

Four advisory measures also asked voters how to divide the money from the increase. 

The majority of the sales tax increase in Woodland would be spent to fund youth and teen programs and facilities.
