As previously reported, recent legislation included meals in a list of items to be exempt from sales tax during the Sales Tax Holiday. That legislation was amended on August 1 to remove meals as an item to be exempt from tax during the Sales Tax Holiday.
If you ordinarily charge sales tax on meals that you sell, nothing will change for you during the Sales Tax Holiday. You will continue to charge sales tax on meals.
The Sales Tax Holiday for 2019 will take place on August 17 and 18.
You can find more information on the sales tax holiday, including FAQs on what’s included, what’s excluded, and what to do if you accidentally charge sales tax on an excluded item.
