    Looks like its all the states that have sales tax on food. If my state had sales

    tax on food I would move to one that didnt.

    I knew Tennessee was high, but I didn't think it was that high.

    Yikes. That&#39;s higher than ourstate sales tax (food is NOT taxed unless it&#39;s restaurant). One of my secret dreams is buying a farmette in Tennessee or a nearby state. Hmmm. May have to rethink that dream.

    Here in Texas there`s state tax on certain food items. For example:

    soft drinks and indivdual ice cream bars. If you buy food that`s

    already cooked, whether it`s at a grocery store or a convenice store,

    tax is added on; restuarats and fast food places also add taxes.



    However, Rx medicines and OTC medicines are not taxed; but things

    like bandages, band-ades, etc, is taxed.



    The tax here is 8.25%

    I had mistakenly assumed that grocery foods were tax-free all over the U.S. because food is abasicnecessity. We HAVE to eat. I&#39;ve never lived anywhere where food was taxed (not counting restaurant food, snack shop items, etc. which are all a luxury item). I guess I&#39;m lucky.It boggles my mind to learn some people are paying high taxes on grocery food items.

    On the other hand, paper products, pet supplies etc. could be considered a &#39;luxury&#39;. We have to eat; we don&#39;t have to have pets (even though pets haveto eat). Soit makes sense to me that those things are taxed.

    Thank God that's ONE thing Michigan doesn't tax! The price of groceries are climbing every week, so I can't imagine taxes on top of it... ugh!
