Advance voting for the education special purpose local option sales tax at Thomaston-Upson Civic Center ends at 5 p.m. Friday, March 17. SPLOST “special election” day is Tuesday, March 21.
Voters are asked to decide whether to continue a one percent sales tax for the Thomaston-Upson School District to fund projects for as much as $28 million. If passed, it would be an extension of the current ESPLOST which ends March 2025, or “upon the earlier expiration of the sales tax… currently in effect.”
Maximum length of tax collection would be 20 consecutive calendar quarters, or five years, potentially extending ESPLOST into 2030.
