550.0000 TAXABLE SALES OF FOOD PRODUCTS—Regulation 1603
(f) SOCIAL CLUBS, FRATERNAL AND RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS
550.1020 Minimum Purchase Requirement for Members. Country clubs and other organizations sometimes establish minimum food and drink purchase requirements for their members. If a member's purchases are less than the minimum, he is required to remit the deficiency. Such payments are additional membership fees and are not payments for tangible personal property. Accordingly, they are not includable in taxable gross receipts from sales of food and drink by the club. 7/22/69.
