During the November 2021 election voters across Fulton County will be asked to decide if they want to continue funding local transportation projects through the collection of a $0.0075 sales tax known as TSPLOST or Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the TSPLOST would be effective from April 2022 to March 2027.
TSPLOST proceeds would be distributed to Fulton County and its cities (excluding Atlanta) based on the resident population. Based on current projections, it is estimated that the 2021 TSPLOST would generate $31 Million to fund transportation improvements in East Point. County-wide, it is estimated that the 2021 TSPLOST would generate $545 Million to be invested in transportation projects.

Fulton County and the 14 cities within Fulton County are committed to transparency in the TSPLOST (Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) program. The TSPLOST dashboard is designed to offer insight into the cost, spending, and timeline information on TSPLOST projects. This tool will assist Fulton County in its goal of continually improving the availability and usability of information and data to our citizens, businesses, and municipal governments.
