SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Starting Monday, sales tax in 51 California cities – including four in the Sacramento area – is increasing.

Taxes in Roseville, Lodi and Sacramento are each going up a half-percent, while West Sacramento is going from 8 percent to 8.25 percent.

Several Bay Area cities will also see sales tax increases: Alameda, Antioch, Martinez, Redwood City, Los Gatos, plus all of Sonoma County.

The standard rate statewide is 7.25 percent.

Online shoppers won’t get any tax relief, either, as a result of a 2018 Supreme Court decision. The ruling meant California now requires out-of-state retailers – who previously were exempted – to collect sales and use taxes.
