What items are nontaxable in California?
March 24, 2014 9:07PM
The California sales tax has a few quirks about food:
- food sold unprepared (most things in a grocery or convenience store) is nontaxable
- food sold carryout or to go (restaurant, grocery or convenience store) is nontaxable
- food sold to be eaten on premises (restaurant, grocery or convenience store) is taxable
So in California if you order carryout food, carry it out, don't be tempted to sit down there or they are required to add sales tax!
