NYS-Tax Law provides an exemption from the tax imposed on sales of tangible personal property for food sold for human consumption. The sales and use tax regulations provide that the phrase sold for human consumption means that the items sold are, in their normal use, regarded as being for human consumption.” Pie pumpkins (i.e., sugar, deep red, golden cushaw, etc.) and similar gourds generally used by a purchaser in cooking pies, cakes, breads, cookies, etc. constitute food sold for human consumption and are not subject to sales tax.
Decorative and carving pumpkins (e.g., Connecticut field, etc.), like other decorative gourds, are not being marketed or sold, in their normal or intended use, for human consumption. Thus, decorative and carving pumpkins and other decorative gourds whether sold at supermarkets, farm stands, nurseries, or other businesses, are not sold as food, and constitute tangible personal property subject to sales tax.
