Michigan Conforms to Existing Law by Amending Food and Drink Rules

In order to conform to existing statutory provisions, including provisions of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement, the Michigan Department of Treasury has amended several sales and use tax rules. The modified rules explain the tax treatment of bakeries, milk and dairy products, vending machines, water, and food for consumption. In addition, the rules provide examples of nontaxable food items. (Rules R205.56, R205.72, R205.126, R205.127, and R205.136, Michigan Department of Treasury, effective March 23, 2007)
