The City of Richmond has unrolled an amnesty program for restaurants “for all penalties and interest on most local taxes due between March 13 and June 30,” including payment on the city’s meals tax normally due to the city on the 20th of every month. The restaurants would still owe the city their March meals tax payment, but removing late fees would allow restaurants to pay the amount down the road without penalties so they can use their existing capital to pay staff and bills in the immediate future.
