CONNECTICUT – Increase On Meal Tax Went Into Effect Tuesday October 1, 2019

 A tax on some foods at the grocery store went into effect on Tuesday.

The tax is on many prepared meals, but it’s not a new tax. It’s an increase to the sales tax.

For example, stores are required to charge a sales tax of 6.35 percent on things like prepared sandwiches. On Tuesday, that tax went up to 7.35 percent.

At the Big Y in Rocky Hill, a slice of pizza is $2.25 at its food court. The new tax adds a couple of pennies to that cost.
