California to Simplify Mobile Food Truck Regulation

The California Board of Equalization voted to amend its regulation on mobile food trucks, adding a presumption that sales tax is included in the listed price of the food.

Currently, food truck vendors must post signs stating that sales tax is included in the price if they do not wish to collect sales tax as a separate charge. Many vendors, however, do not do this. Because these vendors often sell food from several locations with different tax rates, there has been confusion about when and how much tax to collect.

The revised regulation will presume that sales tax is included in the listed price of the food. That way, vendors will not have to post signs and do not have to figure out which tax to collect as each sale occurs. Instead, the vendors can calculate how much tax they owe for each location later.

The rulemaking process will continue, and the new regulation will likely become effective July 1, 2014.
