The Vienna Town Council has new measures to help businesses and residents struggling financially due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Last night (Monday), the council approved extending the deadline for real estate taxes, along with changing the town’s meal tax provision, according to a town press release.
“Even though the Town has its own significant, pandemic-related financial impacts to address, Town Council wants to make what temporary changes it can to assist our restaurants and property owners,” Mayor Laurie DiRocco said in the press release.
Now, the first 2020 installment of real estate taxes in the town will be due on Aug. 28. Fairfax County’s Board of Supervisors also extended its real estate tax deadline to August.
As for the meal tax, the town adopted an emergency ordinance that will be in effect from April 14 to June 13, the press release said.
