Pasadena relies on sales tax, utility users tax and other revenues to fund city-sponsored programs and services, from police officers and firefighters to libraries, parks and community centers.
Did you know if you buy a cell phone over the Internet, Pasadena won’t get its fair share of the sales tax?
Buy your cell phone from a Pasadena store instead! That way the city will receive one percent of the purchase price, which will help fund vital local services.
When you activate your new cell phone and sign up for service, Pasadena will receive the utility users tax listed on your bill as long as it is mailed to a Pasadena address.
