At present, meals are already subject to a 6% tax. If the meals tax is enacted, the result would be a 10% tax on meals.
That’s quite an increase:
4/6 = 2/3 = 66.67%
Rounding up, that’s a 70% increase in the taxes paid on meals.
Is this much of an increase necessary? What concrete and documented steps have been taken by FCPS to cut spending?
