If you buy a Hat in Richmond it's a 5.3% state tax, but if you buy a Ham Sandwich at a restaurant located in the city it's 11.3% with the additional 6% city imposed meal tax that surrounding Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico County restaurants currently do not have. Help us, help Richmond's small businesses and residents by signing this petition asking city council to REPEAL THE MEAL TAX.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: City of Richmond, Virginia.

Repeal The 6% Meal Tax

If you buy a Hat in Richmond it's a 5.3% state tax, if you buy a Ham Sandwich at a restaurant located in the city it's 11.3% with the additional 6% a city imposed meal tax that surrounding Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico County restaurants do not have. At 11.3% citizens are more highly taxed to eat in Richmond, Virginia than ALL 50 of the largest localities in the United States of America (Source; The Tax Foundation).

Help us, help Richmond's small businesses, patrons and citizens by signing this petition asking city council to finally REPEAL THE MEAL TAX.

Sincerely,
