Research and Statistics

The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) collects taxes and fees that account for more than 30 percent of the annual revenue for state government. In doing so, the CDTFA produces valuable data that can assist policy makers, economists, researchers, and the business community at large to better understand California's business climate. The information can also enhance the understanding of the impact on the community of taxes we collect.

Examples include taxable sales by city and county and by type of business, fuel consumption statistics, property tax statistics, including assessed values of properties subject to general property taxes, and other relevant indicators.
