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 place to live, work, and play!  
SPLOST vote coming up on November 8
On November 8, Gwinnett County voters will go to the polls to decide whether to renew the one-cent SPLOST sales tax. The six-year program would start when the current program expires next March. For election information, visit www.gwinnettelections.com.

County and city officials have agreed to share SPLOST proceeds, with the County receiving 78.76 percent and cities getting 21.24 percent. If approved by voters, the new program could raise an estimated $950 million over six years to be used for transportation improvements along with public safety, parks and recreation, library relocations and renovations, civic center expansion, senior service facilities, and city administrative, parking, and cultural facilities plus city water and sewer capital improvements.
