Special Purpose Location Option Sales Tax

Since 1996, school systems in Georgia have been allowed to place a referendum before taxpayers for an Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (E-SPLOST or SPLOST) that has enabled school districts across the state to build and renovate schools, upgrade technology and reduce long-term debt without adding additional tax burden to the local system's property tax owners.
