Greenville Residents Find the Truth about the proposed Tax Hike, What residents say will shock you!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Greenville Citizens Roads Advisory Commission would have you believe that the majority of residents want their taxes increased.

Greenville County Council is selling this 1% sales tax hike under the guise of road improvement. But the truth is we already pay for state roads through the gas tax and county roads through the $15 vehicle registration fee. See fact sheet here.

According to Councilman Willis Meadows, “The increased sales tax for a family of two will cost them $300 a year.”

This tax will remove $70 million a year out of the local economy. It will hurt working families already struggling to pay the bills.

Many Americans are forced to find part-time jobs just to make ends meet.

Americans for Prosperity’s Seth Powell and State Vice Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, Joshua Cook hit the streets over the weekend to find out what the average Greenville resident really thinks about the proposed tax hike in Greenville County.

What Greenville County residents actually say will shock you (Well only if you believe the Greenville Citizens Roads Advisory Commission). The majority of people we talked to opposed the tax hike and wanted to tell County Council not to put this tax hike on the ballot.

The truth is that this tax will hurt everyone. Please take action and tell Greenville County Council NOT to put this tax increase on the ballot!

Help stop the largest tax increase in Greenville County history.

2. Email your Councilman 
3. Call your Councilman

5. Attend the Tax Day protest – April 15th 5:00 PM County Square
