There's all this talk about the city creating a new sales tax that would expire in five or 10 years. Isn't that what they said when the one-cent sales tax was passed in the early 1990s? That sales tax hasn't gone away.
No, the one-cent countywide sales tax was not designed to sunset. When it was put on the ballot for voter approval, it did not include any language stating that the sales tax would expire.
