Currently, only Broward, Collier, Citrus, Lee, Martin, and Okaloosa Counties do
not have a local sales surtax in Florida.
Lee County leaders have placed a one-half-cent sales surtax on the November ballot for the Lee County Public School System.
The money will be used to fund tangible capital projects. The Collier BCC approved a project list that spells out how the County’s portion of revenue, an estimated $420 million,
would be allocated. The list sets aside:
Naples, Marco Island and Everglades City will split approximately $70 million over the
course of the tax, which will be used for city-specific projects.
