2023 SPLOST Information
SPLOST is a county-wide one-cent, voter-approved, “Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax” for a designated time period that local governments can use to fund capital projects. Back in March of 2017, Fayette County voters approved a six-year SPLOST, which comes to an end in 2023.
A new referendum will be placed on the ballots in March of 2023, to replace the 2017 SPLOST. More information pertaining to the 2017 SPLOST can be found by visiting; https://peachtree-city.org/1355/2017-SPLOST-Information.
