2013 House Bill 2313 (Acts of Assembly 2013, Chapter 766) increases the rate of the statewide Retail Sales and Use Tax and imposes an additional state Retail Sales and Use Tax in the Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads Regions. The Department of Taxation has prepared draft Guidelines for the Retail Sales and Use Tax Changes and the New Regional Transient Occupancy Tax Enacted in the 2013 General Assembly Session. Click here to access the draft.
We wanted to let you know that the Department of Taxation is now accepting comments or suggestions on the draft guidelines. Because the changes to the Retail Sales and Use Tax are effective July 1, 2013, the review period for the draft Guidelines is necessarily short. Please send any comments or suggestions you may have to Mark Haskins (contact info below) by the close of business on April 18, 2013.
