Meals Tax

In May 2016, the Annual Town Meeting adopted Massachusetts General Law,  Chapter 64L, section 2(a), which established a local meals tax of 0.75% (three-quarters of one percent or the equivalent of a tax of 15 cents on a $20 meal). The Town collects approximately $75,000 to $80,000 each year with the intent that this money be used to help pay for projects including in the Town's Capital Plan.
