On November 8, 2016, Fulton County voters, including residents of Sandy Springs, approved the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (TSPLOST), a referendum to fund transportation improvements within the participating cities. In Sandy Springs, TSPLOST passed with 56.7 percent of the vote.
The collection of the 0.75 percent (3/4 of a cent) sales tax began in April 2017 to fund the T-SPLOST transportation projects.
Who pays the 0.75 percent tax? The sales tax will be paid by anyone - residents, visitors, businesses and tourists - who buy taxable products or services inside Fulton County, outside City of Atlanta limits.
Where will the money be spent? The TSPLOST dollars are allocated to projects identified and approved by the City Council as part of the TSPLOST initiative.
