Food and Stanford ID card

Stanford Students: no sales tax* when you show your valid student ID

CA Sales Tax Regulation 1603 (k) provides a sales tax exemption for meals served to currently registered Stanford University students by Stanford owned and operated food outlets. In order to obtain this exemption, students must present their student ID at time of service.  

*Alcoholic and carbonated beverages and food products sold or served in a venue where an admission fee is charged upon entrance are subject to sales tax regardless of student status. Third party vendors such as Panda Express, Subway, Kikka Sushi and Starbucks require that all patrons, including students, pay sales tax.
