2016 SPLOST Summary
On July 22, 2014, the Cobb County Board of Commissioners approved a referendum on a six-year one-cent Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax that, if approved by voters, will be in effect from Jan. 1, 2016 thru Dec. 31, 2021. The current one-cent SPLOST expires on Dec. 31, 2015.
Cobb County currently has one of the lowest sales tax rates in Georgia (6 percent). The Nov. 4, 2014 referendum will allow voters to determine, upon expiration of the existing 1 percent sales tax, if a new 1 percent sales tax should be utilized for needed capital improvements involving parks, transportation, public safety, libraries, senior centers and other Cobb and city facilities.
