Penalty in CA for baking from home - Page 2

post #16 of 53
Jason, you are, of course, as is virtually always the case, quite correct. It's the same with frozen yogurt which is taxed if you eat it in the yogurt store, but not taxed if you take it away. Nothing is ever simple in California !

I don't think the op wants to own a business, if I understood the post right, she just wants to be compensated for her time. lol... Join the crowd, That's what we are doing by opening a business. She knows very well the cost involved, but your decision needs to be whether the investment is worth the sacrifice you'll make in the beginning to lay your head down at night and sleep well.

If you want to be compensated for your time, you have two options: work for someone else, or own your own business.

If you don't want to work for someone else and you don't want to run a business, you are perfectly free to pursue cake decorating as a hobby and donate your creations.

I believe several states have this rule regarding food and sales tax. If the cashier asks if your food is for here or to go, you can save yourself some money by answering the latter even if you will be eating on site.

In Texas, if you provide a place to eat OR provide eating utensils, the food is taxable. Napkins are not included.

KelleyM, sorry my one letter misspelling bothered you so much. I have had a wrist injury from a car accident for over thirty years and I am just learning to type with two hands. I have only been trying since January. My wrist is always in a brace when I am home. Since I have been doing this, I have had more misspellings. That is why some of my posts are edited.

Sorry my injury is offensive to you. I guess my wrist injury is a measure of my ability to spell.

By the way, I had two misspelled words in this post, but I caught them.

Haha! If I was judged by the misspellings I create by typing really fast and really inaccurately I would have been condemned long ago. Now that I got an iPad it makes it worse With the autocorrect, too. I just corrected five things in that last sentence.

I have to agree that it's ridonculous to ask what the penalties for doing something illegal are as part of the decision-making process about whether to start a business. If its not legal don't do it until you can do it legally.

similar in KY. I can sell you a whole cake without tax, but if I slice it, OR hand you a whole cake AND a fork, it's taxable. Napkins has no impact on taxes.

It's not your injury that's offensive to me. Don't blame repeatedly spelling the same inflammatory word wrong (the same word that you repeatedly accuse members of this board of being) on your wrist. That's, um... ridiculous. icon_smile.gif And you sure do type a LOT for someone with such a terrible injury. I am impressed. icon_smile.gif

(this list was PM'd to me)

By the way, around here some people always say "you have to know the risks if you're going to operate illegally". So our OP was asking what one of the risks was, and all of the sudden she's "rediculous".

Wow...the only thing that I see as ridiculous here is that anyone has the time to compile a list like that then pm it to each other. Wow. I always have a mental block when I try to spell "lavender," I want to put an "a" in the end instead of an "e." Do you guys want to make a list of any posts where I've done that?

ETA: Yes, if you were constantly in an outrage over things that were "lavendar" and "lavendar" meant that you held the opinions and actions of other members of this forum in contempt, and you repeatedly spelled it "lavendar", someone would probably notice. If you posted 10 times in the last month about "lavendar" things, with your poor injured wrist that limited you to 4,000 posts in less than 2 years... someone would probably notice.

All I'm saying is that compiling a list of something like that, pm'ing it around, then posting it is really juvenile and unnecessary. I don't know who put that list together, but if my 13-yr-old daughter had done somethng like that, obviously to just be mean to someone, I would tell her that she should be ashamed of herself.

Agreed...if your only contribution is criticizing someone else's spelling, you are probably better off not posting.
