Actually prepared food like in a restaurant or fast food is taxed, but all other food such as in the grocery store is not taxed.

A great reason to eat at home!

Heard on radio yesterday that most resturants do more take out than eat in business now. SHeesh!

Apparently the State of Colorado does not tax real food "for home use", but some towns and cities do. https://durangoherald.com/articles/137354

Groceries and clothes are not taxed in Massachusetts. There is a restaurant tax if you eat out or take out. Also seeds are not taxed.

This was from 2008, so states and rates may have changed since then, but there are a few states that tax groceries:
Quote:

The Tax Foundation is often asked which states exempt certain items from their general sales taxes, especially as they relate to food. The following is a list of the states that do tax groceries, and if applicable, which ones apply a special rate on grocery items. All other states do not tax groceries.

States that tax groceries (rate if not fully taxed): Alabama, Arkansas (3%), Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois (1%), Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri (1.225%), Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee (5.5%), Utah (1.75%), Virginia (1.5% + 1% local option tax), and West Virginia (5%).

Notes: Idaho’s income tax provides a $20 credit per person that is designed to partially offset the impact of taxing groceries. Also, our source for this data, CCH, cites a Kansas law that allows for a “limited tax refund available to disabled, elderly, and low-income households.”

Here is Washington we just voted that towns & cities cannot tax food (from stores & farmers markets). It bothered me that the sugar drink companies were backing it, but once one kind of food is taxed, then all foods could be taxed.
