Middlesex County & Urbanna Allocate Cigarette Tax Revenues

It was back in July 2021 when Middlesex County and the town of Urbanna joined the Chesapeake Bay Region Cigarette Tax Board to levy a 40 cent-per-pack tax. The Southside Sentinel reports since then the county has collected over $254,000 and the town receives close to $12,000. The county revenues are going into the general fund, while the town will allocate its proceeds towards preservation and upkeep of the circa-1766 James Mills Scottish Factor Store.
