On November 5, 2013, the majority of voters in Henrico County approved a referendum that would allow the Board of Supervisors to impose a tax on prepared food and beverages, commonly known as a meals tax, equal to 4% of the amount charged.
At the February 25, 2014 Board of Supervisors meeting a public hearing was held on the amendment to the Code of the County of Henrico to levy a 4% meals tax. After the public hearing the Board of Supervisors approved the amendment to levy a 4% meals tax. The collection of this tax began on June 1, 2014.
Meals tax revenue is dedicated to the operational and capital project needs of the Henrico County Public Schools.
