Northam recommends eliminating sales tax on groceries

Virginia Business is reporting today, Dec. 15, that exiting Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who leaves office next month, has proposed four tax cuts, “including eliminating Virginia’s 1.5% sales tax on groceries and providing an income tax cut for low- and middle-income Virginians.”

Virginia Business reported that Gov. Northam “also proposed one-time tax rebates — $250 for individuals and $500 for married couples — and ending “accelerated sales tax” payments by retailers.”

Virginia Business noted that “Virginia code requires that the outgoing governor create a budget for the following year, even though his successor may have vastly different priorities, but Northam’s proposals are similar to those recommended by Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin, who campaigned on a promise to end the state’s grocery tax and make other cuts. Youngkin takes office Jan. 15, 2022.”
