Sales Tax Increase


On November 8, 2016, the voters approved a 1% district transaction sales and use tax ballot measure, known as Measure Q, in the City of Del Mar. The additional funds generated by Measure Q will be used to fund projects or services such as improving streets, undergrounding utility lines, improving city-wide streetscape, providing additional safety services, and improving community parks.

Measure Q goes into effect on April 1, 2017, at which time all taxable sales conducted within Del Mar city limits will increase by one-percent (1%) to 8.75%.

A reminder to all local businesses conducting any type of taxable sales within the City limits, businesses are required to remit the additional one-percent transactions tax along with their sales tax to the State Board of Equalization on a monthly or quarterly basis. 

If you have any questions about implementation of the district transaction sales and use tax, please contact the City’s Finance Department at 858-755-9354.
