Question

With this new state sales tax increase, I want to know when Douglas County’s countywide one-cent sales tax is set to expire.

Answer

The countywide one-cent sales tax does not have an expiration date. When the tax was approved in 1994, the ballot language did not include a sunset provision. That’s different from when Lawrence voters approved a trio of sales taxes for public transit and infrastructure. Those three sales taxes will sunset after 10 years.
