I work for a general contractor in California. Today we received notice that all “lumber and engineered wood products” would be taxed an additional 1% starting Jan 1, 2013.
It is nice to know that the economy is booming so much here in California that we can raise the price of all lumber products by 1%. This of course includes all plywood, fencing material, wood beams, 2x4’s etc.
I got another letter from the county today that every business tax certificate issued after Jan 1 will have an additional $1 fee as mandated by the state for the “Disability Access and Education Fund” per SB1186.
