The ABLE Commission recently issued an advisory letter allowing restaurants holding mixed beverage licenses to sell packaged beer and wine in conjunction with food sales through curbside pickup or drive-through.
In response, the Oklahoma Tax Commission issued a notice dated March 20, 2020 addressing the mixed beverage tax related to curbside or drive-through sales of packaged beer and wine. The Oklahoma Tax Commission’s notice provides that such sales do not constitute mixed beverages that are subject to the 13.5% mixed beverage tax. However, the sale of packaged beer and wine in these instances should be treated as a retail sale subject to regular sales tax.
