Capital project sales tax expiring

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - The Horry County One-Cent Capital Projects Sales Tax will end this month, according to County Spokesperson Lisa Bourcier.

The tax was in existence for seven years. The sales tax will pay for the following projects, which were approved by the voters:

 

- 67-miles of road resurfacing (under construction)

- 100-miles of dirt road being paved (under construction)

- Construct grade separated interchange at the intersection of U.S. Highway 17 Bypass and S.C. Highway 707 at the back gate of the Myrtle Beach Air Base (under construction)

- The widening of S.C. Highway 707 from Enterprise Road to the Horry County line including intersection improvements at S.C. Highway 544 (under construction)

- Construction of the Aynor Overpass (completed)

- The widening of Glenns Bay Road and grade separated interchange at U.S. Highway 17 Bypass (construction to begin summer 2014)

- Pave 2 lanes of International Drive from Carolina Forest to S.C. Highway 90 (construction to begin late 2014/early 2015)

Retailers located in or making sales in Horry County will receive a notice from the South Carolina Department of Revenue with the new state sales and use tax rate for Horry County as of May 1, 2014.
