We are committed to protecting the restaurant industry and its patrons by fighting the proposed discriminatory Prepared Foods Tax / Restaurant Tax. This latest assault on your wallet comes from an attempt by certain Greensboro City Council Candidates to find money for a wish list of projects too expensive to be funded from the taxes they already collect. The Prepared Foods Tax / Restaurant Tax burdens local citizens and restaurant owners at a time when patronage is already down due to a declining economy.

At a time when people are struggling to put gas in their car and food on the table, it is wrong to tax one of the basic needs of life to fund projects and amenities used or owned mostly by high income earners who can afford to pay their own way.
