Coffee County Early Voting on Sales Tax


The actual day of the referendum vote is Tuesday, Feb. 27.

County Mayor David Pennington said if the increase passes, the sales tax would go from 9 to 9.75 percent per dollar, bringing additional annual revenue of about $5.2 million for the county and two cities.

Of that, the City of Tullahoma would get $2.1 million, the rural portion of the county would get $1.8 million and the City of Manchester would receive $1.3 million.
