York County, S.C., Grocers Overcharged Shoppers For Sales Tax

Supermarket shoppers in York County, S.C., were supposed to get a break on sales taxes, starting Jan. 1, but some grocers apparently didn’t get the word, the Fort Mill Times reports.

Grocery stores have learned that they improperly charged sales tax on unprepared foods for about three months after the start of the year, and some are notifying customers of ways they can get refunds on the overcharges.
