What is SPLOST?

SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) is a one-cent tax on consumer goods for a term no longer than five years. The revenues of this sales tax are distributed to the local school district in which the tax is collected. In 1996, Georgia voters passed a state constitutional amendment, authorizing local school boards to put sales tax referendums on ballots. In 1997, the great citizens of Clayton County passed their first SPLOST referendum. In accordance with Georgia Law, these tax dollars are specifically earmarked only for Capital Improvements projects for educational purposes.



Thank you to the great community of Clayton County!

On March 19th, 2019, Clayton County citizens voted YES! for SPLOST VI. The approved SPLOST will be for the term of years 2020 - 2024 for a total of $280 Million.

SPLOST VI revenues will begin accumulation on January 1st of 2020. Thank you for all of your continued support!
