Meal Tax Revised

September 23, 2019

Only items currently taxed as meals such as what you would have in a restaurant will have a 1% increase on Oct. 1.

This is what was intended in the budget we voted on last session. It is a policy that enabled us to protect funding in other areas such as education and exempting Social Security from the income tax.

I will continue to be vigilant and making sure laws we pass are enforced in line with the original legislative intent.
