“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.
