Effective September 1, 2015, the Texas Legislature authorized a municipality to hold an election to reallocate sales tax revenue. By doing so, it allows a municipality to determine whether dedicated sales taxes should be increased or decreased or whether a general revenue sales tax better serves it needs. A municipality may adopt a sales tax provided the combined rate of all local sales taxes do not exceed two percent.
