Thank you Paulding County for supporting SPLOST VI. Since the late 1980's Paulding County Citizens have voted to support and consecutively renew a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax program (SPLOST). SPLOST VI renewed by voters (60.85%) on November 15, 2023.
The SPLOST represents a way for Paulding County, the City of Dallas and the City of Hiram to raise funds for projects, which would otherwise be funded by general funds. With this 1 cent sales tax, money is raised for some of the County and the Cities improvements when an item is purchased within Paulding County - by residents or visitors to our County.
Collections began April 2023 and will continue through March 2029. Projected revenue is approximately $212,000,000.
SPLOST funds are shared between Paulding County, the City of Dallas and the City of Hiram as follows:
Paulding County - 85% ($180,200,000)
City of Dallas - 9% ($19,080,000)
City of Hiram - 6% ($12,720,000)
Below is additional information regarding the Paulding County Transportation Portion of SPLOST VI.
