If you are unfortunate enough to go through a sales tax audit at your bar operations, you’ll be required to pay sales tax on drinks you never sold.
If your bartenders stole or gave-away any drinks, you’ll be required to pay extra sales taxes.
And when your bartenders over-pour, which almost all do, you’ll be required to pay extra sales taxes.
That’s because the tax audit process is so imprecise and arbitrary that it falsely identifies theft and over-pouring as under-reported sales. In effect, the tax process will conclude that you cheated on your taxes. And as a result, you’ll be assessed taxes on drinks you never sold – plus interest and penalties for cheating. Bar owners who honestly reported and paid their sales taxes are facing huge tax bills that threaten to put them out of business.
