550.0908 Taxable Food Percentage. A taxpayer operates a catering, restaurant, and gourmet shop at a single location. In determining whether 80% or more of the sales are taxable, all sales at the business location should be considered rather than considering sales on a department by department basis. Nevertheless, sales of food in quantities that are not suitable for consumption on the seller's premises would not be subject to tax.
