Infrastructure Sales Tax (IST)

Manatee County Board of County Commissioners recognized that it would be in the best interest of Manatee County to provide for safer neighborhoods, reduce traffic congestion, and improve roadways and public facilities as authorized by law, and to levy and collect a half cent sales surtax to pay the cost thereof. A referendum on the Sales Surtax was held and passed by Manatee County voters in the general election on November 8, 2016. Unless extended by voters in a lawful referendum, the Sales Surtax shall sunset and expire on December 31, 2031.
