How SPLOST Works
Pennies really do add up. SPLOST,
or Special Purpose Local Option Sales
Tax, is 1 cent added to the sales
tax you pay on purchased items.
Habersham County residents would
pay 7% sales tax: 4% for state
government; 2% for local schools;
& 1% for special Habersham County
projects. About 1/3 of SPLOST
money comes from people who
live outside the county but
come here to work, shop, and play.
Locally, your pennies pay for
improvements to roads, buildings,
parks, public safety, and water
and sewer service.
