• ESPLOST or Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax is a referendum voted and approved by the Fayette County voters in which 1% is added to the local sales tax. It is dedicated for use by our school system for school facility improvements, buildings, technology, safety, equipment, bus purchases, textbooks and to retire bond debt. It cannot be used for operating purchases, salaries or consumable instructional materials. It is anticipated that collections for the approved ESPLOST tax will continue through spring of 2029.
