Fairer Taxation Structure

In order to fund Greenlight Pinellas, we need to approve elimination of the current property tax used to fund PSTA and replace it with a 1% increase in the county sales tax. This fair tax approach reduces the burden of property taxes on many Pinellas County residents while offering a fair, consumption based approach that includes all consumers in Pinellas County, including tourists.

    Pinellas County voters will be deciding the fate of the Greenlight Pinellas plan in this November’s election. Ballots for the election will be mailed starting September 30, meaning voters will be casting ballots in as little as two weeks. If approved, the current property tax that funds PSTA would be eliminated, replacing it with a one-cent sales tax that would allow PSTA to expand bus service by 65 percent countywide, expand hours of operation and institute new bus rapid transit lines along with building 24-miles of light rail between downtown St. Petersburg, Carillon and downtown Clearwater.
