Is there sales tax on coffee in florida?
Good grief! I don't know! I'll go see... be back soon.
Wait. Prepared coffee like you purchase at Starbuck's etc., or coffee beans or ground coffee that you purchase to make yourself?
Purchased at Starbucks etc sorry wasn't clear
I believe you get charged a 6% sales tax if I'm not mistaken.
Thanks, DF. I got sidetracked by work. As if, huh? Sheesh.
Even if take out? As I'm planning to top up my Starbucks card and I'm trying to work out how much I need!
WOW! Jeff, have you seen this?!
"But for our readers, who are smarter and more socially responsible than the average bear -- there's no excuse for spending $40 a week to feed a Starbucks habit. Miami has plenty of brew, from cafe con leche to Panther, so here are our 10 reasons never to hit up a soul-sucking Starbucks again.
10. They're accused of mocking deaf people.
According to a new lawsuit filed in New York, Starbucks employees mocked a group of deaf customers, then proceeded to call the police on them. Um, yeah. Baristas aren't what they used to be."
Here's the entire article.
Eeeekkk there is Starbucks in magic kingdom but but but but.......
I'm not a Starbuck's fan, Jeff as I think their coffee is burnt tasting and too harsh. However, that whole mocking of deaf people would put me off even if it were my favorite. I do understand that it was the workers in that one Starbuck's but it still makes me cringe.
Anyone any idea what the sales tax would be at the apple store in mall at millenia or florida mall? are they even the same rate?
Keith, it would be the same.
any idea what rate it would be?
There is sales tax added to everything. Unless you go to Delawre as they have no sales tax
I should know, but I remember saying "6.5" to someone about Disney and them saying nah it was 7 I'm sure.... someone else said, no I'm sure it's 6
All right in their own way, just different counties etc.
REALLY weird for us UKers where sales tax is already added into the prices on display
I think Reedy Creek (Disney) had a different rate than Orlando. And then the resorts have their own taxes.
Sales tax can be levied by the state, the county, the city, or the municipality. You can end up paying a fairly high rate, depending. Tax is not levied on food items, but that is a morass of "prepared" versus not prepared, etc. Simple things like eggs, meat, vegetables, fruit, are not taxed.
I've given up trying to decode it and just always keep in mind that what I see on the sales sticker will be increased by taxes. In some places, usually smaller, there will be tax included prices.
It also depends upon what you are purchasing. Cigarettes and alcohol are taxed heavily, at a rate that far exceeds the rates applied to other items. Speaking of cigarettes, when we were rushing through Newark airport recently, to make our connecting flight, I noticed the price of a carton of cigarettes. $142!!!! Now THAT is ridiculous!
The Florida sales tax is 6% but then the cities/counties can add a surtax to that. You can expect to pay anywhere from 6-7.5% depending on where you are in Florida. The resort tax of 6% is above and beyond the sales tax.
