The Senate Governance and Finance Committee will conduct a second informational hearing on June 13th on the services sales tax bill, SB 993 (Bob Hertzberg, D-Van Nuys). This hearing is a follow up to Senator Hertzberg’s May 16th presentation to the Committee. CMTA has previously written about SB 993.

CMTA and a coalition of business, industry, and taxpayer advocates gave testimony on the negative impact of SB 993 at the May hearing and are preparing to provide more information at this second hearing to lawmakers that demonstrates how a three percent tax on services severely distorts the costs in manufacturers’ supply chain, negatively impacting our ability to operate in California.

If you have concerns, questions, or comments on how this measure would impact your operations, please contact please contact Jarrell Cook, Policy Director, at jcook@cmta.net or by phone 916-498-3356.
