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%
