Penny Sales Tax
On November 8th, Horry County voters will decide whether or not to renew (past March 2023 for another 15 years) the 1% sales tax that has been in effect when voters last approved it in 2008. The tax money would be used to help fund future building needs and capital improvements of Public Schools (80%), Coastal Carolina University (13.3%) and Horry Georgetown Technical College (6.7%). If not approved, an increase in taxes for houses, business, vehicles, land and personal property would be used to cover the aforementioned school expenses.
See Horry County Schools for more information.
