Tax = $0.00

I loved seeing that on my receipt from Safeway in the District of Columbia today.

The absence of a tax on groceries in the capital city makes its outlandish 10 percent restaurant tax easier to digest. The difference between the two taxes is also the reason I usually buy lunch at the Safeway if I’m in the mood to eat something other than leftovers.
