This evening, I was a patron at KFC in Linden, on Cleveland Ave, Columbus, OH.  I drove thru the drive thru and used a coupon for a 2 piece boneless box with a side, biscuit and drink for $4.99 as a buy one, get one free promotion. 

This prompted me to attend this restaurant in a flyer I received at home.  Upon getting to the pickup window, I was told the price was $5.22.  How and why was I charged an extra amount than advertised, when I didn't "dine in" to get the tax added?

I think the Management or workers are manipulating the cash drawers to charge tax on the receipt when no tax is collected on April 15th of each year.  I did pay the extra $.23 cents, but was reluctant and hungry. 

I believe many patrons are paying more than is required by law, as these taxes aren't collected when I frequently enjoy a Wendy's on my lunch break.

Thank you for your interest in fraud.

Ohio State Taxes on Food

AUTHOR: Stacey - ()

The Ohio Department of Taxation allows sales tax on drinks sweetened with sugar  or corn syrup, such as sodas or sugary juices, tobacco and alcoholic beverages.

Fast Food is not considered "nutritional"
