Half-cent sales tax

School Cents Make Sense

 

Okaloosa voters on Election Day will decide on a half-cent sales tax that could boost School District revenue for the next 10 years.

With an estimated forecast of $256 million, the half-cent tax would provide needed revenue for long-overdue projects throughout the district. Newly elected Superintendent Marcus Chambers said his top priorities include safety initiatives, new AC units, and roofs.
