Transportation Investment Act: TSPLOST

Program Overview

The Transportation Investment Act (TIA) Referendum was passed by Georgia voters in the regions of Central Savannah River Area, Heart of Georgia - Altamaha and River Valley. These three regions will implement a one percent regional sales tax over a ten year period to fund transportation improvements. Georgia DOT is responsible for the management of the budget, schedule, execution and delivery of all Projects contained in the Approved Investment Lists. Georgia DOT is collaborating with local and state agencies to ensure timely delivery of TIA projects, with a structure that focuses on high-level project management, intergovernmental coordination, transparency and successful program delivery.

Program Funding

Collection of TIA funds began on January 1, 2013. Funds are collected by the Georgia Department of Revenue (DoR). DoR will collect and enforce the special district transportation sales and use tax for the use and benefit of the Special District imposing the special district transportation sales and use tax. Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission (GSFIC) will disburse the proceeds of the special district transportation sales and use tax as soon as practicable after collection. GSFIC will transfer the 25% distributions for the local government allocations monthly. Funds for building projects were first distributed in early Spring 2013.
