SACRAMENTO-

The State Board of Equalization revealed a website Wednesday that promises to help consumers keep from being overcharged sales tax.

Users type in an address and the map will show what the sales tax is for that area.

The Board of Equalization says the site will also help retailers stay up on what the current sales tax rate is.

The statewide sales tax is 7.5 percent, though that number can vary from city to city.  The state’s highest sales tax rate is 10 percent.
