One Cent Infrastructure Sales Tax

$1.8 billion

Since 1991, the One Cent Infrastructure Sales tax has generated $1.8 billion countywide.

$101 million

In 2022, the penny sales tax generated $101 million; of which, $56 million was collected for Seminole County projects, and remaining funds were allocated to Seminole County cities and SCPS.

20%-30%

Florida Department of Revenue estimates that 20%-30% of penny sales tax funds are paid by visitors, not residents.

On May 20, 2014, Seminole County voters approved the 3rd generation of the One Cent Infrastructure Sales Tax. Known as the Penny Sales Tax, collections are levied on the sale of consumer goods to visitors, residents, and businesses, ensuring the cost to construct and maintain infrastructure is shared.

The Seminole County Board of County Commissioner approved an interlocal agreement on June 11, 2024, relating to the proposed use of the Penny Tax proceeds and shared distribution with the Seminole County School Board and the seven municipalities of Seminole County.
