Department of Taxation Guidelines

The Virginia Department of Taxation has posted guidelines for sales and use tax changes effective July 1, 2013 at their website.

In brief, "Effective July 1, 2013, the Retail Sales and Use Tax rate for most purchases will increase to 5.3 percent statewide.  In addition to the statewide increase, there is a 0.7 percent increase in the localities that make up the Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads regions.  The tax on purchases of qualifying food for home consumption remains unchanged."


For additional information  and links to revised reporting forms, etc. please follow the link shown above.

As always, please give me a call to discuss how these changes may affect your particular situation.
