Meals Tax Referendum, Vote Nov 8
In the November 8 General Election, Fairfax County Voters will be asked to vote YES or NO on a meals tax question. The question asks voters to allow the Board of Supervisors to impose a 4 percent meals tax on certain prepared foods, which would be paid by residents, commuters and tourists. If the majority of voters approve the meals tax, the Board of Supervisors would dedicate the revenues to two purposes. First, 70% of the net revenues would be dedicated to Fairfax County Public Schools. Second, 30% of the net revenues would be dedicated to County services, capital improvements and property tax relief. If approved by voters, the meals tax is estimated to generate approximately $99 million in the first year with 28% of that amount coming from non-county residents.(Statement from the FCCPTA) For more information, click here.
