Explanation of Fiscal Impact
This bill extends the imposition of the one percent special sales and use tax originally imposed by Act 378 of 2004 for an additional seven years. The revenues collected provide Lexington County taxpayers a credit against the school property tax liability. Revenue collected pursuant to this special local sales and use tax totaled $44,100,000 in FY 2016-17. The extension allowed in this bill increases Lexington County sales and use tax revenue collections from the special one percent special sales and use tax by an estimated $44,100,000 in FY 2018-19.
