The Woodlands Sales Tax:

On November 2, 1993, voters authorized the Woodlands Board of Directors to levy and collect a one percent sales and use tax (the base 1%). Currently, the Township relies on this tax to fund substantially all of its programs, functions, and services.

Authorization of an Incremental Sales Tax
From 2001 to 2006, the Board created several economic development zones to fund improvement projects through the imposition an incremental sales tax. The additional 1% sales tax was collected within each designated zone to include funding for: the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion expansion, Town Green Park, Market Street, Waterway Square, The Woodlands Mall expansion, Fire Station #6, and The Woodlands Fire Training Facility.

Expansion of the Incremental Sales Tax
Following a public hearing held on November 16, 2007, the existing economic development zones were reorganized as The Woodlands Township Economic Development Zone. At that time, the Board imposed the incremental 1% sales and use tax within the boundaries of the expanded Township. Collections of the incremental sales and use tax will be used exclusively to satisfy funding obligations under the Transition Agreement, for The Woodlands Fire Department, and other previously established improvement projects approved by the Board.
