State announces new tax rule meant to help food truck vendors

Thanks to a new state sales tax change set to take effect, food truck fans in California won't have to dig around in their pockets for exact change anymore.

Earlier this year the California state Board of Equalization amended the rules for the pricing of food sold from mobile food trucks.

The change is aimed at making food trucks more business and customer friendly.

In the past, food truck operators have been required to post signs stating that local sales tax is included in their listed prices. That can be difficult to figure out, though, since food trucks may sell their fare in multiple cities and counties - with differing sales tax rates, but starting July 1st all pricing posted on food truck windows is now presumed by tax officials to include sales tax.
