Sacramento SEO Pro warns of higher California taxes

Sacramento SEO Pro says California taxes are going up. Prepare nowI received an e-mail RE: California State sales taxes. Your Sacramento SEO Pro is sad to report that California state sales taxes are going up 0.25% on January 1, 2013 because voters approved Proposition 30. I was outvoted.

This is a serious blow to small business. Every tax increase takes money from consumers and gives it to governments. Businesses and consumers have less money. They become less able to buy goods for their businesses and homes.

What you need to know

  • If you are planning to make any big purchases, do so before January 1.
  • If you collect California State sales taxes, like I do, you need to collect the higher rate starting on January 1.
  • Buying from Amazon.com won’t help. Amazon.com now collects California state sales taxes.

I am copying some verbiage from the California State Board of Equilization here. Sorry for the bad news.

Sales and Use Tax Rate Will Increase on January 1, 2013

Due to voter approval of Proposition 30, the statewide sales and use tax rate will increase one quarter of one percent (0.25%) on January 1, 2013. The higher tax rate will apply for four years — January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016.
For more information on this increase, please visit our tax rate increase webpage. For a listing of tax rates, please visit our California City & County Sales & Use Tax Rates webpage.

In addition to the statewide sales and use tax rate increase, voters in some cities and counties approved a number of new or increased district taxes that will go into effect April 1, 2013. These new or increased district taxes will be sent to taxpayers in a separate notice.

“Yes yes yes,” you may say, “these guys are a dime a dozen. Why should I do business with this guy”? Here are three reasons:

1. I used to think this was useless. My business almost failed. I decided to change my attitude about Internet marketing, search engine optimization and social media. My business recovered. If you think this is useless, I can help you embrace this as a valuable tool to grow your business.

2. My ideas work. I can show proof of campaigns that achieved page one placement.

3. I am running a business too. I believe SEO and social media are tools you have to use to meet your objectives.

We’re not living in 2005 anymore. Running a successful business isn’t as easy as it used to be. The margin of error is smaller. You have to be good at what you do and your marketing has to be great.
