I thought it might be best to move this to it's own topic, since I was worried that my question might get lost in the original stream I placed it in. So, here goes: Looking for some help understanding Ohio's Sales Tax on food. Food purchased for "off-premise" consumption is Tax-Exempt. Sales Tax, however, is to be charged for "on-premise" consumption. So my question is: Where does Vending fall in all of this? If someone buys something out of a vending machine or honor snack box, is it taxable or not? The vendor can't monitor whether the customer at the item right there, or took it with them to another location, right? Is this wording of the Food Salas Tax for restaurants and caterers? Or do vending companies in Ohio have to pay sales tax on all sales? Then comes the confusion of the different rates in each county. Does a vending company have to track each location's sales separately for sales tax purposes? Any insight from Ohio vendor's would be MUCH APPRECIATED
