SPLOST Infographic Explains SPLOST Details


2021 SPLOST

A Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax  is an optional one percent county sales tax used to fund capital projects.

What can a penny do?

A one percent tax on goods and services can be used for roads and bridges, fire trucks, sheriff’s vehicles, water and sewer improvements, land, facilities, and facility renovations.

SPLOST funds capital projects that are important to residents like parks and transportation improvements that make it easier to get around the county and public safety vehicles and equipment that protect everyone.

Past county projects that have been funded through a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax include Fire Station 8, the Oconee Veterans Park Multi-Use Fields, the FY19-20 Transportation Improvement Plan, the Calls Creek Water Reclamation Facility, and the Courthouse Expansion and Renovation Project.

The SPLOST referendum will be held on November 3, 2020.
