What is street maintenance sales tax?
A Street Maintenance Sales Tax Program is a method of funding street maintenance projects through the local sales tax. State Law requires voters to approve the program through an election every four years.
When residents and/or visitors purchase taxable goods in the city, they pay a sales tax on that purchase. The current sales tax is 8.25%, which is similar to other cities throughout Texas. The majority of the sales tax revenue goes to the state, but a portion of that revenue can be set aside to be used for local projects, like the ongoing maintenance of streets throughout the city.
The Street Maintenance Sales Tax program was chosen by the residents of Sachse, for the residents of Sachse. The program expires in 2021 unless it is renewed by Sachse voters. If voters choose not to renew the program at the May 2021 election, the program will be discontinued.
