Hole In The Wall

カリフォルニア州サンノゼ在のソフトウェアエンジニア。

安くなったカリフォルニア消費税。

ざれごと

会社のカフェテリア。いつものごとくミディアムサラダを持ってレジへ。そしたらいつもより微妙に値段が安い。

Been incorrectly charged!

 右が一昨日、左が今日のレシート。値段は同じだけどセールスタックスが2¢ほど安い。えっと、何かの間違い?と思って調べた。そしたら、

Voter-approved Proposition 30*, The Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012, which imposed the one quarter of one percent (0.25 percent) temporary statewide sales and use tax rate expires on December 31, 2016. As a result, effective January 1, 2017, the California statewide sales and use tax rate will decrease by 0.25 percent from the current rate of 7.50 percent to the new rate of 7.25 percent.

Sales and Use Tax Rate Decreases January 1, 2017 – Board of Equalization

2012年にカリフォルニアで可決された課税法案が去年末で期限切れ。よってその分消費税が今年はじめから0.25%安くなったらしい(7.5%->7.25%)。うちの会社のあるサンタクララ市はそれに市税を上乗せすること1.25%、よって8.75%から8.5%へ減税。んでも何故今日から実施、カフェテリアさん?

If a Retailer Charges an Incorrect Tax Rate

A retailer who continues to charge and collect the higher statewide sales and use tax rate after January 1, 2017, must either refund the excess tax collected to their customer or pay the excess tax to the Board of Equalization (BOE). If the excess tax collected has been paid to the BOE, the retailer may request a refund on behalf of their customer by completing form BOE-101, Claim for Refund or Credit. For information regarding filing a claim for refund on tax overpaid to the BOE, please see publication 117, Filing a Claim for Refund.

一応今まで余計に取られてた分リファンド申請できるみたいだけど、数㌣だしなw。まあでも大きな買い物をした人は要注意かも。
