Would this piss you off if a bar....

Would it piss you off if a bar charged 8.25% sales tax (normal in Texas) on credit card tabs but ate the sales tax themselves on cash purchases?

To clarify a bit... CURRENTLY all bars here eat the tax on ALL purchases... it has to be built into the price. They aren't allowed to break it out but that all changes January 1st.
Of course it would be a complete pain to add sales tax to cash purchases but a no brainer for cc purchases.

But let's assume consumers are completely ignorant of any changes in tax code. They only see that now their credit card tabs have sales tax added. I understand a certain amount of people will be pissy but how bad would you rate the backlash?

The bars I frequented didn't charge an even dollar amount for ANY drink. It was always 2.50 or 2.75.

They were the group that lobbied for the change to begin with. Airport and hotel bars where you always get a printed bill with your total will switch as well. But I just can't see busy downtown bars ringing up and handing out a bill for every purchase. So it makes zero sense for them to do anything other than A)pass it on when they do credit card tabs or B)raise prices across the board
Do restaurants really pose competition for bars anyway? Their drinks are usually a lot more expensive even if they do give you a receipt breaking it down.

It's a bum deal for bars because they can't realistically adjust prices any less than 25 cents at a time.

Yeah, a buck per drink is pretty standard if you're ordering at the bar. It has been for quite a while too.

So the net increase in tax under the new system is .95%? If you pass the 8.25% on to customers you would be increasing the overall cost to them which would be in excess of the tax increase from the change in systems.

I bet. It's damn near impossible to find drinks under $4 at DFW bars unless they are shitholes.

it did 10 years ago when I used to frequent bars. I don't much anymore. I go to the local sports bar now that is more of a sports restaurant. Everyone pays and tips at the end of the night.

Yea, I'm just giving you shit. The Midwest is incredibly cheaper than DFW especially in terms of bars.

I only have 2 regular bars anymore and they start tabs for me without a card and I pay cash at the end of the night.

An admirable habit in many transactions that I see more frequently among those of Latino heritage than I do in the Anglo population.
