What is a SPLOST?

A Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) is a county-wide tax used to fund capital outlay projects proposed by the county government and participating municipal governments. It may not be used for operating expenses. The tax is imposed when the County Board of Commissioners calls a local referendum and the referendum is subsequently passed by the voters within the county. The tax is collected on all items subject to sales tax.
