County Green Space
The County Green Space Sales & Use Tax is a newer local tax that was passed by legislation in 2022.
The County Green Space Tax, up to 1%, can be used within a county area for preservation procurements. If county resident voters approve the tax, it will typically become effective in that county on May 1 following the November election date. This tax is in addition to any other locally imposed Sales & Use Taxes. Revenues collected may be used for debts associated with preservation projects.
