It consists of the State sales tax rate of 6.25% plus the City of McLendon-Chisholm rate of 1.5%.  Subsequent to review of the 2016 Citizen Survey results that indicated support for a sales tax rate increase, the City Council voted unanimously to call a Special Election to propose a ½ cent increase that would make the City’s sales tax rate 2.0%. If the proposition is approved, the sales tax rate in McLendon-Chisholm will be 8.25%, the same rate charged by all other cities in Rockwall County.
