New Restaurant Tax Being Proposed for Henderson
In an effort to raise money to increase tourism in Henderson, city officials are proposing a restaurant tax. But because of it's second-class city classification, Henderson was prohibited in the past from enacting a restaurant tax, which some official say keeps Henderson's tourism industry from being competitive with other cities.
But one thing puzzles me though, how would charging people more money to eat at restaurants encourage people to come to your city? Many opponents to the new tax says that it's just a slick way for the city to increase it's revenue. And unless Henderson is planning on building a new stadium or entertainment venue of some kind, a new tax is just more money in the pocket of the politicians.
Do you think Henderson would benefit from a new 'restaurant tax'?
