An important message from Jodi Roth, Government Affairs, on why VRF opposes the proposed meals tax increase, and why you should too.

The potential impact is far reaching, beyond the restaurant industry. This increase puts our city at a 12.8 percent tax (meals tax + sales tax) and would be amongst the highest tax rates in the country.

This is not how we would want to portray the City of Richmond to visitors. Particularly in light of the accolades, our restaurants are bringing to the city.
