Who pays for all these projects?

The half-cent sales tax approved in November 2016 began in 2017.  Approximately 40% of the tax is paid by visitors to Brevard County.  Current annual revenue estimates are $30-40 million/year for ten years.  Actual tax collections by the State of Florida are incrementally transferred to Brevard County to fund SOIRLPP approved projects.  COVID-19 Note: Sales tax collections are generally expected to decline due to the drop in tourism in the state.  The Citizens Oversight Committee will closely monitor this and make recommendations for any adjustments to the County Commission.
