City of Richmond, Virginia: Repeal The 6% Meal Tax

    1. Petition by

      Jake Crocker

      Richmond, VA

If you buy a Hat in Richmond it's a 5% state tax, if you buy a Ham Sandwich at a restaurant located in the city it's 11% with the additional 6% a city imposed meal tax that surrounding Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico County restaurants do not have. Help us, help Richmond's small businesses and residents by signing this petition asking city council to REPEAL THE MEAL TAX.

      Richmond City has proved by their actions that they are not interested investing back in the local community with tax payer money. No a new baseball stadium will no solve these problems. Let the people who work, live and love our city be privileged enough to use their money as they wish.

      If Richmond can afford the stadium, it doesn't['t appear that it needs the meals tax any longer. The city is apparently flush with cash.

      I avoid Richmond restaurants because of this insanely high tax. That means zero tax revenue from me. And I'm not alone.

      I eat downtown everyday and find this tax unreasonable.
