Ben McDaniel & Tommy Jennings/TSPLOST Impact
T-SPLOST (Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) is a specialized sales tax dedicated to funding transportation projects. The tax can be imposed for up to five years and is capped at a 1% rate.
Barrow County voters decide in November of 2023 if the TSPLOST referendum will pass or wait for another time. The vote will determine the next steps toward Barrow County’s transportation infrastructure. As with any rapidly growing county; transportation may be Barrow’s biggest growing pain.
The big question: how does the vote’s outcome affect local and regional business?
