December's #DMATaxFact

by DMA Staff | Jan 19, 2016

Did you know in some states such as California, a restaurant can serve Gazpacho (tomato based soup served cold) tax free, while that same establishment would add sales tax to your hot tomato soup? Both are soup, but taxed differently.


Did you know in the state of Texas, if your personal holiday decorations are installed by a professional, the service is not taxed? But if that same professional brought their own decorations, you would be taxed.


Did you know in California, fresh fruit is only taxed if it is sold through a vending machine?

Please do not hesitate to contact your local DMA office should you have specific questions or requests.
