I purchased a few grocery items and went to pay for them. A couple jars of pickles, a bag of oranges and a bag of apples… when it was time to pay, I used a EBT card and then was told I owed still $4.88… to my surprise, I was charged tax on the apples and it was not covered by EBT… I saw on the receipt I was charged tax on fruit… so I asked management why and their explanation was that it was bagged… well so was the oranges but they were not taxed. Walmart is charging tax on certain food items that qualify as eligible for tax exemption in Florida… I guess I will have to report this to the department of agriculture and the tax office along with family and children services… this is wrong and discouraging healthy foods…
The apples on your receipt are EBT eligible, per the Walmart online website.
You should not have been charged sales tax, as per the Florida dept. of Revenue guidance.
I don't think it's "fraud" (as you tagged the question), probably something mis-configured in their system. You can report sales tax violations to the Florida dept. of Revenue following the instructions on this site.
FWIW, in California this item is sold for $4.88 (pre-tax, food is tax exempt in CA), which is exactly what you paid. You can verify that by changing the zip code on their site to a California zip (for the Pensacola, FL store it shows $4.54, matching your receipt).
