Is there sales tax on food items?
If the food items are purchased for home consumption, no State sales tax is collected, but 3.6% Rio Blanco County sales tax is due. Ready made food items for immediate consumption, such as food served at restaurants, convenience store, catered events or grocery prepared deli meals, are taxable at both State and County. Please refer to the FYI Sales 4 (PDF).
