County-wide sales tax increases April 1


The Johnson County Commission reminds businesses in Johnson County that the county-wide sales tax rate will increase by one-half cent effective April 1.

Voters approved the additional half-cent sales tax in the November 2022 General Election for the purpose of 911 dispatching services, replacing radio towers and communications equipment, and establishing a countywide public safety radio communications system to support reliable dispatching of 911 calls for services to all emergency services of Johnson County. The additional funding will also improve communication reliability necessary for public and emergency responder safety.

The ballot question included a sunset of Dec. 31, 2033.
