Penny for Pinellas

The renewed Penny for Pinellas tax is the primary source of funding for governmental capital projects, covering more than 70% of their costs. While routine costs for maintaining roads or public parks come from the County’s general fund – primarily supported by property taxes – most of our long-term investments are supported by the Penny.
