Sales Tax in Auburn, CA

While the State of California only charges a 6% sales tax, there's also a state mandated 1.25% local rate, bringing the minimum sales tax rate in the state up to 7.25%.

As you would imagine, with a combined city/county sales tax rate of 1.25%, Auburn comes in on the low end for sales taxes in California. In fact, there are 1314 cities (out of 1782) that charge a higher rate on items sold with their borders.

Property Tax in Placer County

As California property tax rates go, Placer County is on the low end at only 1.087%. There are 31 counties in the state with higher property taxes and only 26 counties that have lower rates. Note that 1.087% is an effective tax rate estimate. Actual property tax rates vary slightly from property to property within cities and counties due to special property tax boundaries.

California has one of the lowest property tax rates in the country, thanks primarily to Proposition 13, a 1978 amendment to California's Constitution. Proposition 13 limits property taxes (which are determined by local governments) to at most 1% of the property's cash value. In addition, annual increases due to property value appreciation are limited to 2% per year. A property's value can only be reassessed for tax purposes if the property changes owners or if there is construction done to the property. Despite the 1% ad valorem tax limit, almost all effective property tax rates in California actually end up exceeding 1%. How can that happen? Proposition 13 allows local governments to charge additional fixed amount special assessments. Those special assessments can be earmarked for anything from funding schools to mosquito abatement. Local governments are also allowed to sell taxpayer approved bonds, which are repaid by additional property taxes not subject to the 1% limit.
