The Bradley-Burns Uniform Local Sales and   Use Tax Law was enacted in 1955. The law authorizes counties to impose a sales and use tax. Effective January 1, 1962,  all counties have adopted ordinances for the Board of Equalization  to collect the local tax (Tehama County did not conform from   01/01/65 to 09/30/65).
