What is the Open Space Sales Tax?

The Open Space Sales Tax is a sales tax of 0.25% (25¢ on a $100 purchase). It was passed by Adams County voters in 1999 as a 0.20% sales tax (20¢ on a $100 purchase) which would expire at the end of 2006. In 2004, Adams County voters renewed the sales tax through 2026 and increased it to the current level of 0.25%.
