Sales Tax Exemptions in Utah

In Utah, certain items may be exempt from the sales tax to all consumers, not just tax-exempt purchasers.

Several examples of items which are considered to be exempt from Utah sales tax are prescription medications, items which are used in agricultural processes, fuels, medical equipment, or items used in manufacturing.

Many states have special, lowered sales tax rates for certain types of staple goods - such as groceries, clothing and medicines. Restaurant meals may also have a special sales tax rate. Here are the special category rates for Utah:





Prepared Food


Prescription Drugs


OTC Drugs


These categories may have some further qualifications before the special rate applies, such as a price cap on clothing items. Groceries are generally defined as "unprepared food", while pre-prepared food may be subject to the restaurant food tax rate.

Candy and soda may be included or excluded from any preferential tax rate depending on whether or not the state considers them to be a "grocery":
