Specific surcharges are:
- ½ percent sales tax surcharge beginning in July of 2018, and graduating to one percent in 2023
- A recent study released by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce shows that nearly half (47%) of sales tax collections in Davidson County are generated by out-of-county residents.
- ¼ percent surcharge on the hotel/motel tax, graduating to three-eighths of a percent in 2023
- The Convention Center Authority, which is funded in part by local hotel taxes and fees, is anticipated to help pay for the transit system by constructing a SoBro station for light rail and rapid bus service. Additionally, the Metro Nashville Airport Authority has agreed in principle to fund a light rail spur from Murfreesboro Road to the Airport with terminal access.
