LUTZ, Fla. — A Taco Bell in Florida is taking heat for the price its charging customers.

Pasco County tax collector Mike Fasano said the Taco Bell in Lutz on SR 54 is charging Hillsborough County sales tax of 8.5-percent even though it’s located in Pasco County. The sales tax for Pasco County is only 7-percent.

Fasano tweeted that businesses should go by their street address and not their zip codes when it comes to charging sales taxes.

Fasano said this was that particular Taco Bell’s third warning and he asked that it get fixed.
