The holidays are over and the cupboards are bare. It’s time for a trip to the grocery store and that means one certainty: taxes.
Today’s tab: $2.19 for the food tax (2.5 percent in Virginia) and another 46 cents for the non-food tax (5 percent in Virginia). Why in the world do we Virginians have to pay twice as much when we buy plastic ice trays and the like instead of food? Ridiculous!
