Sales Taxes Go Up 20%
Posted by: Taxes ()
Date: February 23, 2013 08:07PM

It's a done deal - sales taxes are going up statewide. 5.3% up from 5% everywhere, and a whopping 6% in Northern Viginia and Hampton Roads!

Dumbass... it has nothing to do with Obama. It's a state issue and was voted by a REPUBLICAN-led House

Good. Maybe all of the roads south of Richmond can get paved every year instead of every other one.

I think the gas tax is going to be eliminated with this. 17.5 cents gone per gallon.

Gas tax is being replaced by a wholesale tax (3.5%). Expect this will be passed on to the customer!

3.5% at $3.50 a gallon 12 cents, so don't expect much of a change at the pump.

exactly, its not gone, just replaced with the wholesale tax. Additionally, it says that people will be paying on average 15 dollars more.

this 3.5% will probably be charged to the local buyer (gas station) then the owner of that station will change more to reflect that cost.

Fairfax will create its own transportation department to waste, I mean spend, all those millions coming in. It will require many friends and relatives of Fairfax officials to be placed in high paying useless positions. For every dollar going to actually repair the roads two dollars will go to pay all the govt workers to meddle in the projects.

@retard - um, the old gas tax was actually split , and has been more focused towards schools, police, fire/rescue funds, that sorta thing. The new %gas tax is designed to give a larger percentage of funds towards roads. That's what Dumbass was talking about. Sorry you think education is something only illegals should have since apparently you missed yours LoLz

And what makes you think they won't split this tax or use the revenue for something entirely different? The gas tax is not being eliminated so this is just additional revenue. I know it's impossible to get an honest civil debate here, but doesn't anyone think it's time to start cutting instead of spending?

I wish it was 6% statewide. Sales tax is the best tax. People like me pay less taxes because we are frugal. Growing your own veggies and hanging clothes out to dry are a couple of fun, easy ways to save money. Making bio-diesel for my Volkswagon TDI is fun also.
Taxes benefit everyone and I am proud to pay them.

I buy my stuff at Ft Belvoir and don't pay any sales tax. THAT's frugal.

@Dane Bramage:

yes, and your federal salary and/or pension will soon reflect those taxes that you don't pay at the PX----it ain't going up---the taxpayers can only handle so much. There is no free lunch.

It's time for us to stop the selfish greed in America and help this country get back on its feet. In the end we will all lose if we are each fixated on the pennies we save. Penny wise, pound foolish.

well, I'd go with the way the LAW IS WRITTEN as to indicate what they would spend it on.

as for the gas tax not being eliminated, NO, IT IS NOT! It's being replaced with a NEW TYPE OF GAS TAX that will generate MORE REVENUE! Didja even bother to read the article? That's the plan - take the CURRENT tax that was sending money a lotta diff places, and change the law on it so it will focus MORE of the $$$$$ on the roads. Sorry you think $$$$ grows on trees, but it dont here on 3rd rock, son.

Silly, stupid Gordon. You believe the estimates. The estimates of tax revenus are almost always wrong. Why do you think goverments tax things they want less of (e.g cigarettes) and provide credits for things they want more of (e.g. new energy efficient windows)? Your knowledge of economics and the impact of taxes is expectedly low.

And any future VA legislature can change where the revenue is directly, just like a past VA legislature changed the current state gasoline tax from being 100% directed to transportation to just more general fund revenue. Your knowledge of politics is expectedly low.

Gordon, trusting politicans, bureaucrats and the tax-loving media. No wonder you're wrong so often. lulzzzzzzzzzzz

Correcting you is a full time job GB. Easy, but requiring much time (being as you're wrong so often). Is it of use to society? Perhaps not. But your constant lying and inane pretzel logic BS is not only of no use, it's a cancer on our society. I would offer that preventing cancer is useful to society and you're a cancer that needs to be prevented.

McDonnell (R) and LeMunyon (R) supported it. Hiking sales tax for everyone in the state is better than Fx Co paying for the entire state.

Didnt you people learn anything from the last election. Its not your money to begin with its the governments. They determine how much you will keep and how much they will take. So if you make six figures its your duty to give part or all of that to those who dont feel like working. While it may piss you off you make the recipient's quite happy.

Anyone who has the screwed up idea that you should keep the majority of your pay is wrong.

Nova gets screwed over as usual. If we could get our fair share of state taxes instead of supporting the rest of the hick state then we would not have a road issue here. It's bullshit that we get taxed more. Give us our fair share then if another part of the state comes up short they can raise their own taxes. We only get back 11 cents on every dollar we send south.

What road issue?

That's the part I don't get. All I hear is that the new taxes are necessary because of all the lousy roads and "crumbling infrastructure" but I just don't see it. And traffic in Nova is still going to be bad regardless of how many roads you build.

I literally drove all over the damn state in the last year: Northern VA, Richmond, Tidewater, Charlottesville, Roanoke and overall the roads were perfectly fine. As as matter of fact I'd say the roads in VA are markedly better than the roads in our neighboring states. And significantly better than the roads in Maryland and DC, its night and day.

So can somebody fill me on the roots of this "transportation crisis"?
