Description

Additional sales and use tax for counties and cities; county appropriations to incorporated towns for educational purposes. Authorizes counties and cities to impose an additional local sales and use tax at a rate as determined by the governing body, if initiated by a resolution of the local governing body and approved by the voters at a referendum. Revenue from the tax shall be used solely for capital projects for the construction or improvement of schools. The bill removes the limit on the amount that a county may appropriate to an incorporated town that has not complied with the provisions of its charter relating to the elections of local officials. Under current law, such amount is limited to the amount the town would have received from local sales and use tax for educational purposes if such election had been held. Amends § 58.1-605, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
