What is SPLOST?
Capital Opportunities with SPLOST
In 1985, the Georgia Legislature gave counties the option to implement a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, known as SPLOST. A SPLOST is an optional one percent county sales tax used to fund capital outlay projects proposed by the county government and participating qualified municipal governments. The SPLOST was conceived and enacted as a county tax for funding the building of schools, parks, roads, and other public facilities. This tax requires voter approval and allows counties to raise funds for projects otherwise funded from other tax sources.
Your county, your future.
Your SPLOST dollars
are at work.
SPLOST funds are invested in projects that have long-term benefits and use for citizens of Glynn County. Residents have input on the list of projects through Town Hall meetings and Public Hearings with the County Commission. SPLOST funding also helps keep property taxes lower for citizens by allowing tourists, renters, and non-residents to contribute through the 1 percent tax.
What projects are approved for a SPLOST program?
A list of approved projects is compiled by the Glynn County Board of Commissioners through a series of listening sessions and public input from the community. The final project list is approved by the Board and presented to the community prior to the referendum. The list can be found on the Glynn County website: https://www.glynncounty.org/1121/SPLOST
