California Tax Laws

Taxes are collected at the federal, state, and local levels in a variety of ways. Tax revenue in California is used to pay for state roads, public schools, the California Highway Patrol, water infrastructure, courts, and other things that impact the lives of most Californians. While no one enjoys paying taxes, it is a trade-off that allows the state as a whole to provide essential services and maintain order. California has a relatively steep sales tax but Proposition 13 made the state attractive to businesses by keeping taxes low.
