I'm confused on what I should be charging for taxes on my cakes. I have read through my states tax site a couple times. I called and asked if I should charge the full amount or half and they said full. I can also cancel the restaurant tax# I have and just use the sales and use#. Im in Utah, Would I charge the combined sales and use% or the restaurant/ prepared food even though im not a restaurant?
Thank you for any help! Here is the tax rate for my state.
Not sure why my picture didn't post. Here it is.
i would suggest that you call your local tax authority to make sure you get this all straight -- don't be afraid to call therm several times -- this is an area where you need to be very sure you have it right -- don't mess with taxes right?
*them not therm
Also, do a search on your sales tax code. Many states require sales tax on cakes only if they are sold by the slice. Whole cakes aren't taxed at all. Just something else to check.
Thank you I will call back and ask. I have tried finding something about whole cake taxing and not having any luck. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right place.
I did a quick read on your tax code and it looks like cakes are taxed at the grocery rate. BUT DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.
I'll definitely call back. That's the way I read it to, so the first time I called I said the grocery rate and he told me no that's only for grocery. You need to charge the full amount. Ill just ask for the exact amount i need to charge. I wish he would of just told me in the first place.
Thank you for your help!
