Proposition C, approved by voters in May, increases League City’s local sales tax by $0.25. Starting October 1, 2019,  League City’s combined state sales tax (6.25%) and local sales tax (2.00%) will be 8.25%, which is the same as the majority of cities in the Houston and Galveston County area. The proceeds of the ¼ cent increase will fund drainage and mobility projects included in the general obligation bonds passed by voters in May. 

Certain items are exempt from sales tax. They include groceries, gasoline, and prescription meds. Both residents and visitors to League City will pay the local sales tax. Approximately 30 percent of all local sales tax collected is from visitors to League City
