Supervisors to consider meals tax ordinance Feb. 25

Four-percent tax would take effect June 1
UPDATE: JAN. 28, 9:50 P.M. – The Henrico County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing Feb. 25 to consider implementation of a 4-percent meals tax, which would begin June 1 – one month later than initially expected.

The board tonight voted unanimously to introduce an ordinance that would amend the county code and impose the tax on prepared meals sold in the county. It did so with the power granted by voters, who approved a Nov. 5 ballot question. County officials estimate that the tax would generate at least $18 million a year – with about half of that being paid by non-county residents who eat meals in Henrico.

Officials had targeted May 1 as the start date for the tax but suggested delaying it in order to allow enough time – about three months – to explain the proposal to all businesses that will be affected by it. > Read more.
