Park Sales Tax: Retail purchases in Olathe contain a 1/8th cent sales tax which is dedicated to parks and recreational facilities. The benefits are essential for the health and well-being of our citizens.
History: In 1999, voters approved a 1/8th cent sales tax initiative. This initiative produced roughly $15 million over five years. The success of the program was very well received and voters approved the extension of the tax for an additional 10 years in 2004. Estimated projections calculate the tax revenue will bring in approximately $25 million by March of 2015.
