Virginia Counties Reject Tax Hikes

We used to live in Prince William County and now pay our local taxes to the City of Manassas within the county, so I’m always happy to read news like this:

Prince William and Loudoun counties have decided not to impose higher taxes on commercial office buildings and shopping centers, reducing the amount of money made available to them by the General Assembly to pay for road and transit projects.

Granted, I’d rather read that local officials have cut taxes imposed on consumers like us, rather than just frozen them on businesses. But the reality is that tax hikes on businesses get passed along to consumers, so freezing those fees is a good step.
