City Council: Vote "No!" on increasing taxes in Lynchburg

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Lynchburg City Manager Bonnie Svrcek has proposed raising taxes in our city, Lynchburg, Virginia, by $4.35 million. This tax rate would raise the meals tax by 0.5 cents to a combined total of 12.3%, raise the lodging tax from 5.5% to 7.5%, and the real estate tax another nickel to $1.16 per hundred dollars. These taxes may not sound like much, but the slippery slope has lead to the areas largest tax in real estate and among the highest meals tax rates in the country.

If passed, these taxes will continue the city's long track record of bigger government that continues to pass its fiscal irresponsibility to the citizens of Lynchburg that are embarrassed and cannot afford an increase on our already our unconscionable tax rates. The citizens of Lynchburg urge City Council to emphatically vote no on any proposed tax increases that disproportionately hurt the poor and working class and threaten to stifle Lynchburg's growth. If you are a Lynchburg citizen, please sign the petition. A public hearing will be held on Apr. 4, 2017, 7:30 p.m. at Lynchburg City Hall.
