Tax on a tax
Thank you, Cathy Wyatt, for being an astute shopper and recognizing this Elizabethtown administration has imposed a 2 percent restaurant tax on all prepared foods, including delis. Therefore, this tax really is a 2 percent food tax.
Furthermore, the 2 percent food tax also is charged on the 6 percent sales tax.
The customer actually is paying a 2.12 percent tax to the city on prepared food purchases, which includes a tax-on-a-tax.
