County School Facility Sales Tax

Check out OurSchoolsOurFuture, by Springfield Public Schools here

“The County School Facility Sales tax, which went into effect in 2007, represents the first shift away from relying on property taxes for local school districts. [Since this proposal passed], we can make the improvements included in the District’s Facilities Master Plan. The sales tax is one cent on every dollar spent on qualifying retail purchases. Revenue from this county-wide tax is distributed proportionately to all school districts in Sangamon County.

District 186 will receive an estimated $10,025,000 per year in revenue,”

According to the districts’ webpage.
