Restauranteurs, concessionaires, and tax professionals all converged at the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce for the Restaurant, Food, and Alcohol Workshop, sponsored by BOE Vice Chair Diane Harkey. The workshop, also sponsored by Senator Jeff Stone and Mayor of Murrieta Randon Lane, featured sales and use tax instruction for the often challenging prepared food industry.
“Oh good, I’m doing that right!” responded Jeanne Odell from Pepe’s Restaurant in Canyon Lake after getting clarification on the taxability of Groupons and other Deal-of-the-Day instruments. Attendees were also treated to a presentation from another State agency; the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Topics included how to acquire the varied liquor licenses and how to spot a fake ID.
