17 NCAC 07B .2201          FOOD AND FOOD PRODUCTS

(a)  General. - All retail sales of food or food products

are subject to applicable statutory State and local sales or use tax unless a

statute exempts the sales from tax.  G.S. 105-164.13B lists the food that is

exempt from State tax, but not the two percent local tax.

(b)  Exempt Cafeteria Food. - The schools, institutions, and

organizations whose sales of food and meals are exempt under G.S. 105-164.13(26),

(26a), or (27) are not required to register with the Department.  Therefore,

unless one of these entities is otherwise required to register with the

Department by reason of making other sales or purchases subject to the sales or

use tax, it cannot furnish a Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement

Certificate of Exemption, Form E-595E, to its suppliers.  When making purchases

of food to be sold, one of these entities that is not registered must give the

supplier information to the effect that the food purchased is to be sold by the

entity's school cafeteria or dining room, and the supplier must enter this

information on its records and on the sales invoices.  Otherwise, the

transactions may be subject to the tax.  Registered schools, institutions, and

organizations must furnish a properly executed Streamlined Sales and Use Tax

Agreement Certificate of Exemption, Form E-595E, to a supplier to purchase food

without paying tax on the purchase.
