REFERENDUM, FOOD AND BEVERAGE TAX

Should Floyd County levy a tax on food and beverages sold, for human consumption, in the unincorporated areas of Floyd County, Virginia, pursuant to Section 58.1-3833 of the Code of Virginia, 1950, as amended, subject to the exceptions and limitations established by law, with the revenues collected from the tax to be used to support capital improvements as determined by the Floyd County Board of Supervisors?  YES or NO

Also to be decided by Floydians is a referendum on a Food and Beverage Tax.

  • supported unanimously by our supervisors to foster an alternative revenue source shifting the burden away from always relying on real estate and personal property tax increases (see their support letter below)
  • all adjacent counties except Patrick already have a Food & Beverage tax
  • Virginia standout tax facts from the 2016 fiscal year

As they do every year during budget deliberations, the Board of Supervisors researches new avenues of revenue possibilities. This investigation into ways to increase alternative revenue sources hopefully shifts the burden away from always relying on real estate and personal property tax increases. The Board has always endeavored to keep Floyd County’s tax rates low and reasonable for the citizens of the County. The average real estate tax rate of the ninety-five counties in the Commonwealth of Virginia was $0.66/$100 for 2016. Floyd County landowners have been blessed with a tax rate of $0.55/$100 for the last three years and a rate of $0.50/$100 for four years before that.

For the last several years, citizens have approached the Board concerning the enactment of a meals tax for the County. The meals tax is NOT a tax on your groceries you buy in Floyd. It is a tax only imposed on prepared foods from a restaurant or deli meals. The tax would not apply to churches and their members nor to certain volunteer and non-profit organizations that might sell food on an occasional basis. Counties, by law, cannot exceed 4% for their meals tax, while Towns and Cities can exceed that rate. The Town of Floyd enacted a meals tax in 2005 for restaurants / businesses within the town limits and their rate is 5%.

The Board has placed on the ballot, for the November 7, 2017 election, the referendum question, with a yes or no vote, to enact the meals tax for the County. As noted in the referendum question, all revenues collected from the tax will be used to support capital improvements. These capital improvements could be for police or emergency services vehicles, solid waste equipment, school facilities, or other capital improvements as determined by the Board of Supervisors. These revenues could potentially offset the need for the County to borrow funds. We estimate collections of around $200,000/year according to gross sales figures from restaurants / businesses in the County.

If you have questions concerning the meals tax, please contact your Board of Supervisors member or the County Administrator at 540-745-9300.
