Portsmouth meals tax increases for 2021


PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Dining in Portsmouth will cost more in the new year.

Starting Friday, the city is increasing its meals tax to 13.5%, making it the highest meals tax on the Southside. Though that’s still equal to meals taxes in Hampton and Newport News.

The meals tax increase was supposed to go into effect back in July, but the city delayed it due to the pandemic.
