On November 3, 2020, Arlington voters approved the adoption of an additional quarter-cent City sales and use tax during the General Election.

The quarter-cent sales and use tax will fund Arlington's Economic Development Corporation to undertake such projects as authorized by Chapter 505 of the Texas Local Government Code. The sales tax will become active in April 2021.  The proposition was approved with 55.18% of the vote, according to unofficial vote totals.
