COLLIER COUNTY'S ONE-CENT SALES SURTAX
The Naples Chamber supported Collier County’s 2018 local option sales surtax increase. The seven-year, one-cent sales tax increase is expected to raise approximately $490 million for a variety of transportation, capital and community projects.
In November 2018, Collier County voters approved a seven-year, one-cent local option sales surtax. The local option sales surtax is estimated to raise approximately $490 million and will end on Dec. 31, 2025 or when the $490 million is collected.
Revenue generated from the local option sales surtax will be used for tangible capital projects. In Collier County, the money will be used for a variety of infrastructure projects, including improvements to roadways and bridges, and construction of a regional park, workforce training center and mental health facility.
The Collier Board of County Commissioners appointed a seven-member oversight committee in 2019. The committee is tasked with providing oversight and review of expenditure reports to ensure the county is in compliance with the ballot language.
