Frequently Asked Questions

What is a TSPLOST?

TSPLOST stands for Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax. It is an additional sales tax on goods and services, to be approved by the Henry County voters in a referendum, to raise money to fund transportation projects, and nothing but transportation projects, in Henry County and its municipalities.

How Much will TSPLOST Cost?

The proposal is a one percent (1%) additional sales tax on top of Henry County’s current sales tax rate of seven percent (7%). This will mean paying eight cents, instead of seven cents, for every dollar of goods and services purchased. A 1% additional sales tax is expected to generate approximately $245 million over the proposed five-year duration of this additional tax from 2022 to 2027.

Where will the Money Go?

One percent (1%) of the estimated $245 million to be raised will be retained by the State of Georgia, as required by law, to defray the state’s cost of administration. $3 million will cover Henry County’s management and administration of the TSPLOST program. The remainder of the funds will be used to pay for a list of transportation projects developed by Henry County and the cities of Stockbridge, McDonough, Locust Grove, and Hampton.
