Food Tax

Starting July 1, 2013, the Consumer's Sales and Service and Use Tax on purchases and use of food and food ingredients intended for human consumption is eliminated. This is the final step in a multi-year phase-out.

The reduction, however, does not apply to purchases and use of prepared food, vending machine food or soft drinks. For more information about food, food ingredients and prepared food, you can view publications TSD-419 and TSD-420

The CST-200CU Consumers Sales and Service Use Tax return has been updated to include this information.
