What is SPLOST?
4% go directly to the State of Georgia
The Special Purpose Local Option Sales tax carries more restrictions on its use than the Local Option Sales tax. SPLOST must also be renewed once every five years by voter referendum to remain in effect. The last SPLOST was passed in 1998 to cover all years up to 2003, which means a new SPLOST must be passed by voters this year to continue the program.
What can SPLOST be used for?
· Capital Roads, Streets, Sidewalk Projects
SPLOST can explicitly not be used for on-going operating expenses not allowed in the Georgia Law. This would include things like salaries and on-going maintenance projects.
