Sales Tax = Quality of Life
Every time you purchase a taxable item in Petaluma, you help to improve quality of life in our town. That’s because Petaluma retail sales tax revenues help to pay for vital services in the City, like street maintenance, emergency response, and parks.
- Flexible Spending: Unlike other revenue sources, retail sales tax comes with no legal restrictions about how it is spent.
- Unlimited Potential: Also unlike other revenue sources, there are no legal limits as to how much retail sales tax a city can generate.
- Local Tax: With voter approval, cities can add a local sales tax that does not need to be shared with the State or the County. This increases total sales tax revenue.
