The purpose of the 7% Sales Tax was to build certain roads within Seminole County. Those roads have already been built. This special tax has already served its purpose. That is why it is going to expire. That is why the sales tax rate is going to be 6% in Seminole County unless the County Commission votes for a new tax increase.

Some people say the 7% Sales Tax should be "extended" past the date on which it will expire. "Extending" the 7% Sales Tax past the legal expiration date to serve another purpose isn't just an extension, it is a new tax. Calling it an extension is misleading. Calling it a "penny" tax is misleading too, since this tax costs us millions of dollars every year, not just the mythical "penny."

If a 1% sales tax is just a "penny" in the language of pro-tax propaganda, a 100% sales tax would be just a "dollar" tax. You can afford one dollar can't you? Just one dollar? Just a 100% sales tax on everything you need to buy? No? Well, you probably can't afford that so-called "penny" either since it is really a tax that takes hundreds or thousands of dollars from you every year. Those pennies add up.
