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.
We just completed another successful week for the Retail Industry in the 2018 General Assembly Session. Several issues, which impact retail, were heard in both the House and the Senate. These include legislation to tax plastic bags, increase the meals tax in counties, codify the relationship between the Franchisee and Franchisor, and to eliminate the three strikes rule for petit larceny.
