Shenandoah County residents may have been happy to read in Wednesday’s Northern Virginia Daily that there will be no property or personal tax increases in the upcoming 2020 fiscal year. The county supervisors have agreed to keep the property tax rate at 64 cents per $100 of assessed value and the personal property rate at $3.90 per $100.
But supervisors are looking into tapping another revenue stream in the future through a meals tax. That tax is not something supervisors can put into effect, though. Shenandoah County voters would have to agree to it through a referendum.
Voters said no the last time the question was put to the vote. How will you vote this time if you’re asked to add a meals tax in Shenandoah County?
