Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax
Gwinnett voters have approved a series of Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax programs, known as SPLOST, since the mid-1980s. This one percent sales tax has paid for County and city facilities, acres of greenspace, parks and recreation facilities, new roads and improvements, police and fire stations, and libraries around the county. Your pennies are working to keep Gwinnett a great play to live, work, and play!  

Voters approve 2014 SPLOST
On November 5, Gwinnett County voters approved the renewal of the one-cent SPLOST sales tax. The three-year program will start when the current program expires next March. It will raise an estimated $498 million for capital projects. To learn about the planned uses, please read the 2014 SPLOST fact sheet.

County and city officials have agreed to share SPLOST proceeds (County - 78.9 percent, cities - 21.1 percent). The County will dedicate 70 percent of its share of the proposed SPLOST to transportation, including $25 million for joint city/county projects. Public safety, parks, library relocation/renovation, and senior facilities will also get funds. To learn more about the planned uses, please read the 2014 SPLOST fact sheet.
