Oconee County Sales Tax: 7%
This is a reminder that the sales tax for Oconee County businesses is 7%, not 8%.

In April, Athens-Clarke County instituted a penny tax for TSPLOST that may have caused some confusion for businesses in Oconee County, primarily those situated near Epps Bridge. If you have any questions or concerns about the sales tax for your business, please contact the Oconee Chamber at (706) 769-7947.
