OCC sees benefit in new tax

April 10, 2013

Members of Oconee County Council envision a one-cent capital project sales tax as a beneficial new tax that would create an alternative source of revenue for a county that relies on the property tax. During a committee meeting, council members last night agreed to bring up the idea during their next regular meeting. That idea could lead to a referendum as part of the November 2014 General Election ballot. Two times in the past, a one-cent capital projects tax proposal was rejected by the voters.
