Estimates from Local Meals Tax released

The legislature approved a measure allowing municipalities to raise the meals tax by .75%. The revenue generated from this increase would go directly to the city or town that produced it.  Below are two estimates from Arlington and Medford if the local meals tax was adopted and in place on October 1, 2009.

These estimates vary drastically due to their different methods.  It is also important to note that the increased local option meals tax must be adopted by the municipality.

Estimates provided by Department of Revenue.  Special thanks to Chairman Kaufman and Chairman Donato for providing us with this information.
