Phoenix Will Tax Food AgainPosted: February 6, 2010
The Phoenix City Council has voted to tax food again after ending a similar tax in the mid-80s. The City Council is looking for ways to fix a large budget shortfall. The association which represents police in Phoenix claims that the 2% tax is not sufficient to pay for police and fire services and has requested an increase to 4%.
Mesa and Surprise are the last two cities in the Phoenix, Arizona area that have no tax on food.
