Sales tax shuffle

Santa Rosa County Commissioners are once again seeking to raise sales tax in the county while leaving ad valorem property taxes at their current rate.

The new sales tax would levy a half-cent on every dollar spent in the county for items and some services, pushing the sales tax rate in Santa Rosa County to 7.5 percent. The current rate is 7 percent, with 6 percent of that tax going to state and 1 percent going directly the county.
