SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — This could be a good weekend to buy a wide variety items — from cars to tools to clothes — because sales taxes in more than 20 cities and counties across California are due to go up Monday.

Municipalities from Carmel to Culver City are increasing their sales taxes anywhere from a quarter- to a half-cent on every dollar of sales as they seek to boost revenues.

Sacramento's increase — from 8 to 8.5 percent — is estimated to bring in an additional $28 million a year.

On a $1,000 refrigerator, for instance, the new Sacramento city rate will mean an extra $5 in sales taxes. For a $25,000 vehicle, that would come to an additional $125 in sales tax.
