Local Gold and Silver Dealers in San Jose, CA

San Jose is the largest city in Northern California, in terms of both area and population. The city extends over an area of 180 square miles and its 2017 population is estimated to be 1,035,317. San Jose’s location and its commercial and financial sectors have made it into the “Capital of Silicon Valley.”

The city was the first to be established by the Spanish. It began as a settlement in 1777 with the name Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe, after Saint Joseph and the nearby Guadalupe River. San Jose was also the first state capital of California, a position it enjoyed from 1849 to 1852.

Sales Tax on Gold and Silver in San Jose

California levies sales and use taxes on precious metals, with exemptions. In San Jose, total sales taxes amount to 8.75%. If coins are used as a medium of exchange, they are not subject to tax, even though their exchange value may not equal the face value, i.e. the value given for a dollar coin could be more or less in a purchase transaction.

However, if the transaction in coins is an investment or an acquisition of collector’s items, it is subject to tax. In addition, no sales tax is levied on sales transactions of gold and silver bullion over $1,500.
