Nan twa referandòm siksesif, votè Konte Sarasota yo te otorize yon surtax lavant 1%, sou tèt taks lavant leta 6%, pou envesti nan pwojè amelyorasyon kapital pou konte, distri lekòl la ak minisipalite yo.

1% sa a, oswa yon sèl-santim taks sou lavant, sèlman aplike nan premye $ 5,000 * nan nenpòt ki achte ki sijè a taks sou lavant leta a (maksimòm de $ 50).
