School to community relations is key to educational success for our district’s students. Building a bridge from home to your student’s classroom is an important connection for communication and active community involvement in our schools. Students and parents have an important voice in their education. Collaborating, communicating, and working with teachers is vital to a positive learning environment.

Sangamon County Schools Seek a 1% Sales Tax Referendum to Address Facility Needs.

Sangamon County Schools will place a 1% sales tax question on the November 6th Ballot as a step to help increase school safety, security, and improve school facilities. There are many questions about the 1% sales tax and as a result, I have compiled many common questions and have listed answers.

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.

What Is a Sales Tax for School Facilities?

Background: Recognizing the need for Illinois schools to remain competitive and to reduce the burden of school facility funding on real property owners, Illinois legislators passed the Illinois County School Facility Tax Act (CSFT) in 2007. The intent of the law is to provide both a new source of funding for public schools, and an alternative source of funding to traditional property tax revenues. The CSFT provides for a retail sales tax of up to 1% on “non-essential” goods sold in the county for funding school facility needs. Similar laws have been enacted with success in many other states, including in Iowa, where the option was passed by every county. To date, the county school facility sales tax has been approved in 51 Illinois counties and will be on the ballot in three more counties in November 2018.
