Create a shopper group called say calufornians
add all residents to this group based on address
within the shopper group you can add a percentage discount or addition in here

Actually thats not the best way as it wont show as a tax

in admin of vm

Tax mode: Based on Shipping Address under tax config on first tab

then on left menu select tax and add tax rate

choose country then state
and set the number 1% is 0.01

Just be aware there are different sales tax in CA based on city/county. Out of the box VM will do one tax bracket for the state. You can either hack VM .. see here forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=58394.msg221219

or you can buy this
