Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill amends Title 32 of the OCGA and allows for an additional MARTA levy of .50% for DeKalb County. If the tax is approved in a referendum, the rate of any regional or single county TSPLOST in DeKalb County is reduced. This bill also amends the 2% cap on local sales and use taxes by excluding MARTA from that cap when a county also levies either HOST or equalized HOST.
