I frequent a local coffee place. I normally pay with a credit card, but had cash today and used it. I was charged $2.11 for a food item that was listed for $1.99. This item is prepared and packaged by another local company. This seems akin to a supermarket selling a packaged meat from a different retailer.
If they are not supposed to charge sales tax, is that considered illegal? If it is, would the right thing to do be talking to the store management about it? Out of curiosity, if I did talk to them and they refused to fix it, what would be the next step?
Most of this is hypothetical; I'm not going to stop going there and have little personal concern about the additional $0.12 for this item.
