The Effects of the County School Facility Sales Tax on School Districts and Communities
by Henderson, Jason, Ed.D., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2019, 88; 13864953
Abstract (Summary)

The County School Facility Sales Tax (CSFT) has been a supplemental funding source for some Illinois school districts since its inception in 2007. CSFT offers districts an alternative source of revenue targeted specifically for school facilities and for paying off existing debt without relying on local property taxes. This study explores and describes how revenue from the County School Facility Sales Tax in Illinois has been spent by school districts in counties where the measure has passed. Through surveys, documents, and interview data, themes emerge related to how school districts have used this additional revenue to shift to a more preventative focus in regards to school maintenance, to improve safety and security of existing facilities, and in some cases, to lower property taxes for constituents.
