1% Local Option Sales Tax
​Since 1994 Charlotte County has used the 1% local option sales tax to fund a variety of infrastructure projects that enhance our quality of life. The current local option tax was extended with a referendum on the ballot at the regular election on Nov. 4, 2014. The voters decided to extend the 1% local option sales tax for six years.
 
The 1% local option sales tax and has funded many projects over the last twenty years, helping Charlotte County through economic issues that include property tax reform, reductions in state and federal assistance, and unfunded mandates from the state and federal level. The one percent sales tax funds have helped our community in the past and can continue to do so in the future.
 
Sales tax, including the 1% local option sales tax, is paid by all: not just residents, but tourists and visitors. Everyone who uses our roads or spends time in Charlotte County should pay their share. The 1% local option sales tax is one cent per each one dollar spent, and is therefore sometimes referred to as the One Cent Sales Tax. 
 
2015 - 2020 Sales Tax Extension Projects
 
These projects will be funded by the 1% local option sales tax as it comes in over the next 6 years, until 2020:
