capilot: It gets a little weird sometimes, but can anybody here come up with rules that would be a) fair, b) not weird, c) something bagel shop clerks could be expected to memorize?
Daniels: fredklein: "Cut bagels cross the line and become a prepared meal or food sold for on-premises consumption, which is taxable," explains Carla Yrjanson, vice president of tax research and content for Thomson Reuters. "Uncut bagels are typically sold for home consumption and would meet the definition of a (tax) exempt food in New York."So, sliced bread is a "prepared meal or food sold for on-premises consumption"??You mean like a sandwich? Yes. The distinction would also prevent a person from buying cut bagels with food stamps. The distinction is pretty much "meant to be consumed on premises."
seniorgato: If you lose one customer over an $0.08 fee, you will never recoup it. So you better be sure that 1) there are no alternatives around so you have a captive audience or 2) your bagles are so good that nobody will care about $0.08.
