$6 a Month
The cost to a family of four with a median income of $56,000 in Jacksonville is $6 a month, or $72 a year. This figure is based upon the IRS sales tax deductions for a family of four with a medium family income in Jacksonville. Another way to look at this is it cost a dime for every $20 you spend, keeping in mind that groceries, medicine, and other select items are exempt from the sales tax. About 20 percent of the cost is paid by visitors. All the money raised here stays in Duval County.
