Sales and Use Tax Increase

March 1, 2019

Tax Payers,

On November 6, 2018, the voters of the City of Pasadena voted to enact Measure I, which calls for a 0.75% sales and use tax increase.

Therefore, effective April 1, 2019, the sales and use tax rate for the incorporated City of Pasadena will increase from 9.50% to 10.25%.

Please make all changes (systems, other) necessary to reflect and apply the new rate. Application of the new rate is based on shipping dates on or after April 1, 2019.

Please pass this notice on to all other offices, satellites, facilities in your areas.

Note, the current Los Angeles County sales and use tax rate will remain at 9.50%. This includes unincorporated Pasadena.

Should you have any questions please contact the Caltech Tax Office at extension 6744.
