Good Morning I wanted to get more clarity around the bill process after I redeem my groupon. If I'm correct I'll be charged tax on the total amount of order so if my total bill comes out to $95.80 like my groupon is for I'll be charged 5.75 of tax. My tip will be 20% of the 95.80 right? my questions are coming from so of the reviews I read and don't want to be disappointment. Last question on the groupon unlimited drinks say value $21 each but someone said they are charged tax on each glass. Thanks for your time.

Groupons do not include tax or gratuity in the purchase price. If they are included, it will be specifically mentioned in the Fine Print of the deal. Otherwise, tax is collected when redeeming the Groupon and is dependent on the area's local tax laws. It is every merchant’s responsibility to collect and remit tax as required by applicable laws. States and cities often have complicated sales and use tax laws that can be quite confusing. Factors such as where you live, where you redeem your Groupon, and for what goods or services you redeem it may affect how the Groupon is treated for purposes of taxation. If you'd like to discuss the specifics of how your Groupon purchase is taxed upon redemption, please contact the business directly. They should have more information about the local tax laws in question.
