Question by : In Colorado, do retailers charge tax on coupons when you use SNAP benefits?
It is my understanding it varies state to state, but I am wondering if someone uses SNAP to purchase groceries, and use coupons to save money on the groceries…do they have to pay tax on the coupons?

Best answer:

Answer by Corvato
SNAP is usually called food stamps or EBT

you don’t get taxes on coupons… but if you are buying products that have a sales tax, you will be charged sales tax on the product usually before the coupon

so if you have 8% sales tax, and buy a $ 1 product, you get charged $ 1.08
if you use a 50% off coupon, you will pay 1.08, minus 50 cents = 58 cents
