I read that and also found it interesting. I was also wondering something...perhaps you guys would know....

When you go to sam's do you pay sles tax on the items you use to make cakes...flour, sugar, etc?

"Bakeries that make 80 percent of their baked products on premise and do not offer utensils to customers will be able to reduce their sales tax back to 2 percent beginning Jan.1, 2009."

OK, so does this mean that if I offer a cake server with a party cake then I have to charge 7.5% sales tax? Even as a legit home baker?

Also, as a legit home cake decorator, am I considered a "bakery"?

I need some clarity in NC terms please.

I agree...I was told to charge 6.75% (Buncombe county)

So I wonder if I can really charge 2%, that would be nice!

I do not offer any utensils...

I think I will call next week and check....

Less than one month into doing cookies "for real", days away from home inspection and I am so confused right now I could scream. I do know now that I am NOT providing utinsels, haha. Good for cookies!

I would honestly think cakes would fall under the same category - IMO

Thanks to all the NC threads! PLEASE oh please keep them going!

Sheesh... I need medication, haha.
