The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration recently ruled that prepared food sold in a public school cafeteria by a for-profit company was taxable.

The taxpayer was a for-profit company that provided an Arkansas public school with cafeteria services. The company's primary function was to purchase, prepare, and sell food to students, teachers, school employees, and parents.

The sales in question were taxable because they were made by a for-profit company. Although Arkansas exempts non-profit food sales at public schools, there is no exemption for food sold by a for-profit company.

The company also provided cleaning services related to its food sales. Cleaning services are also taxable in Arkansas.
