January 1, 2017, the California sales and use tax rate decreased 0.25 percent – from 7.50 percent to 7.25 percent. The 2012 voter-approved Prop 30 sales and income tax has expired, and we want you to know what this means for you and your business.
Some of the Numbers
The statewide sales and use tax decrease of 0.25 percent applies to all taxable sales and purchases that you have made prior to January 1, 2017. Any fixed-price contract or fixed-price lease agreement on any of our dust collection systems, dehumidifiers, ventilation systems or fume extractors is affected by this change. It is important for you to know that the new decreased rate replaces the rate that was in effect when you first entered the fixed-price contract or fixed-price lease agreement.
The California state board of equalization (BOE) website states:
“The applicable sales and use tax rate is the rate that is in effect at the time the sale occurs. Generally, the sale occurs when the merchandise is delivered to the customer, unless the sales contract specifically states that title to the merchandise passes to the customer prior to delivery.”

What Happens with Q Applied Systems that are Delivered after January 1, 2017?
At Q Applied Systems, the sale occurs when the system is delivered to you, so most sales of our systems and hardware delivered to you on and after January 1, 2017 will be subject to the new tax rate of 7.25 percent plus any applicable district taxes.
