You’re welcome to play along in today’s edition of “Is It Just Me?,” where no question is too small for The Bottom Line.
Q: If a customer has a coupon for a “free item” package of cat food or kitty litter, is there sales tax on the free item? I was unfortunately behind a woman who was arguing with the cashier that her two “free items” were absolutely free and were not subject to the state sales tax. Please clarify who is right.
