Am I required to include the amount of liquor-by-the-drink tax and sales tax on my drink menu?

No, due to a change in state law, taxpayers are no longer required to include the liquor-by-the-drink (LBD) tax and state and local sales tax in the sales price listed in the drink menu.  Taxpayers now may include the LBD tax on the final bill to the customer instead of in the sales prices listed on the menus. 

 If a taxpayer includes the LBD tax and state and local sales tax on the customer’s final bill and exclude the taxes from the drink menu list prices, it must state on the menu that a 15% LBD tax and the sales taxes will be included on the final bill.

If a taxpayer includes the LBD tax and state and local sales tax in the listed menu prices, it must state on the menu that the sales price includes LBD tax and state and local sales tax
