Stop the Sales Tax Hike for Hillsborough County

logo No Tax For Tracks
Hillsborough County Commissioners want ANOTHER 1% sales tax hike!

Is this tax even needed? NO! With soaring home prices, Ad Valorem tax revenues will TRIPLE in next 30 years so there will be plenty of funds available to adequately maintain and improve county roads WITHOUT further increasing our sales taxes.

Another point, the proposed tax spending plan would actually INCREASE traffic congestion! The plan prioritizes costly light rail downtown that would add dozens of RR crossings on major roadways. These crossings will add more traffic bottlenecks and make your drive more frustrating.

Furthermore the tax plan expressly prohibits spending funds on new auto lane capacity and puts 100's of miles of our county roads on "diets" (narrowing the lanes and reducing speed limits). The net effect is actually MORE road congestion and longer commutes.

This tax plan funnels revenues from unincorporated county residents to benefit wealthy downtown developers.

With rising gas prices, cost of housing and high inflation, now isn't the time to raise our taxes. Tell County Commissioners to nix the tax and keep the tax hike off our Nov 2022 ballot!
