Two Percent Restaurant Tax Is Back

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- Starting Friday when you go out to eat in Columbus you’ll be seeing a tax increase on your receipt.

The 2% restaurant tax officially takes effect.

The state legislature revived the tax, and Governor Phil Bryant signed it into law earlier in the session.

You may remember last year, the tax came up for renewal, but died in committee.

Mayor Robert Smith says with the tax back in place it’s going to have a great impact for the city and Lowndes County.
