At a May 4th Special Election, Glen Rose voters approved a proposition reallocating the sales and use taxes collected by the City. The 1/2% Economic Development Corporation Sales Tax was eliminated and the municipal sales tax rate was increased from 1% to 1 1/2%. Overall, the Glen Rose local sales tax rate did not change. The way the money can be spent has changed. The new allocation will go into effect on October 1, 2019.
