SACRAMENTO, CA - “As the food-truck industry continues to motor its way into the mainstream, the California State Board of Equalization is serving up an amended regulation that’ll make it that much easier for Californians to enjoy the culinary creations being borne out of this ever-growing industry,” according to BOE officials in a news release.
The new rule really is meant to streamline things for vendors, but customers might find things easier, an official said.
“We want to help California businesses be successful,” said Board of Equalization member George Runner. “Our new regulation will make life a bit simpler for California’s fast-growing mobile food industry and more convenient for their customers, too.”
Starting next month, all pricing posted on food truck windows is now presumed by tax officials to include sales tax.
“So there’s no more digging around for that extra nickel or quarter to cover the tax portion of your bill,” officials said in a news release. “It also allows food truck owners an easier way to conduct their pricing.”
The BOE is making an announcement about the move in an effort to raise awareness about the regulation, and the BOE itself, the officials said, noting the food truck industry is fast-growing and owners aren’t always aware of the necessary regulations.
Runner is the BOE representative for the district including the Santa Clarita Valley, and will be at the announcement Friday in Sacramento.
