    Confused VA Restaurant Food/Sales Tax

    Advertisements
    Can anyone tell me why it's over 10%?!? This is crazy!!! It's like 10.5%. We went to one restaurant and they said the rate was 9.5% but it was coming up at 10.5%. And here I though CA's tax of 7.75% was high enough.

    Looks like we won't be eating OUT but once a month at this rate.

    I can't believe I've never noticed it being that high. In my hometown sales tax is 9%, so I guess it isn't too big of a difference. 10.5% is ridiculous.
