Taxing a bagel with a schmear? What has the world come to?
Is there no shame!!??
When an audit found New York chain Bruegger's Bagel in violation of this often unenforced clause, the state demanded owner Kenneth Greene cough up a "significant" amount in taxes to cover what the state figured he owed, according to the Journal.
"New York State is requiring that all sliced bagels and all food eaten on our premises be taxed. We apologize for this change and share in your frustration on this additional tax," the signs read, according to the Journal.
