I'm planning holiday in California. Doing some research and getting more and more worried about the pricing in US.
Am I right to think that ALL the price there are shown without tax?
Prices in reastaurant on menu, price in shop for everything?
Then there are different rates of taxes in different places and for different services?That is very confusing :-(
Read this on Beverly Hills forum and to be honest guys, I don't know how you do it? I will have carry around calculator with me at all times! :
"Remember that sales tax (9.25% in most of LA) will be added to the menu prices. Also, in sit down restaurants, its customary to tip the waiter anywhere from 15-20% of the pre-sales tax bill unless the service is just awful"
