Food Tax Holiday
Direct from the Tennessee Department of Revenue is the notice below about the sales tax holiday on food and food ingredients. Lucky for us, "food" includes tea!
That means whatever tea order and no matter how much you order during the month of August, it will be tax-free.
Food and Food Ingredients (August 1- August 31): During this month-long holiday, food and food ingredients may be purchased tax free. Food and food ingredients purchased from a micro market or vending machine remain subject to sales tax. Food ingredients do not include alcoholic beverages, tobacco, candy, dietary supplements, and prepared food. For more information, read important notice #22-10.
