The Jefferson Area Tea Party held a tax day rally on the steps of the Albemarle County Office Building Tuesday evening.
Those in attendance denounced the real estate property tax rate increase approved Tuesday by the Albemarle Board of Supervisors and the cigarette tax increase passed last week in Charlottesville. Both increases go into effect July 1.
This day also marks the fifth anniversary of the area tea party's founding and first rally.
