California Businesses May have an April 30 Use tax due date


2020 Use Tax

Per the State of California

If you bought tax-free items online, in another state, or in a foreign country, you may owe use tax.

Use tax applies to out-of-state purchases made by:

  • Phone

  • Internet

  • Mail

  • In-person

And both of the following apply:

  • The seller does not collect California sales or use tax.

  • You use, give away, store, or consume the item in this state.

For example, you would include purchases of equipment, supplies, and books.

Examples of purchases not subject to tax include food for human consumption such as peanut butter and chocolate. Also, electronically downloaded software, music, and games are not subject to tax if no tangible storage media is obtained.

Use tax does not apply if you paid sales tax.
