The revenue from this Sangamon County School Facility Sales Tax will be generated from Sangamon County residents and more importantly from the people who visit and travel through Sangamon County.

The revenue can only be used to maintain and improve school facilities or to make payments on existing bond debt.

The Sangamon County School Facility Sales Tax is a shift from exclusively relying on local property taxes to fund school facilities.

On Tuesday, November 6, 2018 the voters of Sangamon County and the residents of Williamsville and Sherman will be asked to approve a proposal to provide funding to all Sangamon County school districts through a 1-cent sales tax increase. The revenue from this sales tax can only be used to maintain and improve school facilities or to make payments on existing bond debt.

In schools that thrive in communities such as ours, we educate the students of each other’s neighbors, friends, and family members. Such close-knit relationships result in high expectations for our schools as well as the educational programming and services we provide, and justifiably so. The 1-cent County Schools Facility Tax is a way for the communities of Williamsville and Sherman to provide a revenue source for our schools to make improvements in school security and safety, make facility repairs, improvements, and upgrades so that our students may learn in a quality educational environment for many years to come.

County Sales Tax Revenue For Facility Funding To Sangamon County Schools

The county schools facility sales tax is for one cent on every dollar spent on qualifying retail purchases. Not everything falls under the County Sales Tax like all other municipal or county sales tax items. If it is not currently taxed, it will not be taxed.

The County Schools Facility Sales Tax revenue is generated locally from all Sangamon County residents, but more importantly generated from the population traveling to Springfield and through Sangamon County. Data shows that 30-40% of this qualifying sales tax revenue is generated from people outside, traveling to, and visiting Sangamon County. The county schools sales tax is a shift from relying exclusively on property owners to help fund public schools. This tax is shared amongst all people paying the sales tax on the qualifying purchases.
