Re: Found this blog about Snap Benefits

Indiana also has no tax on food....but has exceptions. Junk foods and candies do have sales tax. I have no idea how Indiana determines what is a junk food/candy and what isn't. Some bags of M&Ms had tax, other kinds didn't, and both could be purchased with SNAP cards. Likewise, if you go to the Deli at Walmart and pick up a rotisserie chicken, you can use a SNAP card for that, but since the tax system figures it as part of the taxes you would pay like if you went to McDs. That doesn't explain it right, I hope that's clear.

Basically, even in states with no tax on food, there are some strange overlaps between the tax system and the SNAP system so there are going to be some foods that you will have to pay taxes on that SNAP will still cover.
