D.C. Food Trucks Now Collecting 10 Percent Food Tax
October 1, 2012
Starting today, D.C.’s 10% sales tax on prepared food applies to food trucks. Previously, food truck vendors were exempt from the sales tax, and instead paid a $1,500 flat fee (now they pay the greater of the two). The D.C. Office of Revenue Analysis estimates the tax change to raise about $1.2 million annually.
