Potential Meals Taxes for Virginia

Indirect Tax, ONESOURCE, Sales and Use Tax March 12, 2012

Several jurisdictions in Virginia are considering new meals tax enactments or increases for 2012 to deal with budgetary concerns.

Fairfax County is discussing a new 4 percent meals tax to fund transportation projects. Winchester is considering a 0.5 percent annual increase for public schools. Campbell County is considering a 4 percent meals tax to pay for services and salaries. Mount Vernon and Loudon County are also in preliminary discussions to impose a meals tax as well.

We will continue to monitor and post updates on these potential meals tax discussions as they are discussed by each jurisdiction’s Board and potentially go to public vote.
