The retail sales tax in Rockdale County will return to 7 percent on April 1. That's when the new one percent Education SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) starts. Previously, the sales tax had been 6 percent.    

Voters approved the new E-SPLOST in 2013. The additional penny sales tax is Rockdale's fourth and is projected to raise about $84 million over five years for capital school projects.
