In order to assist the Board of Supervisors in making a decision about whether to put the question of levying a meals tax in Fairfax County on the ballot, the Meals Tax Referendum Task Force developed arguments both for and against doing so.
The task force makes no recommendation whether or not to proceed with a referendum. The following statements summarize that discussion, condensed into several categories. Not every member of the task force agrees with every aspect of this report.
On June 11, the task force voted to accept this report and send it to the Board of Supervisors, with one objection. The task force issued its final report on June 17, 2014. PDC thanks Gabe Goldberg for serving as our representative.
