Food stamp tendering

If your customer makes payment (or tendering) in food stamps, obtain the food stamp-eligible subtotal* by
pressing the



key and make a food stamp tender entry before entering a cash or check tender.

* Note: The food stamp-eligible subtotal depends upon how your machine is programmed about the food

stamp-eligibility of the automatic tax on a sale of items eligible for food stamp payment, or whether
your machine is programmed to allow the automatic tax to be paid with food stamps or not or to
exempt taxation. The example below presupposes that your machine has been programmed to
exempt taxation.

When the amount tendered in food stamps is greater than the food stamp-eligible subtotal:
Your machine shows two change due amounts in its display. The food stamp change due appears at the
left of the display in dollars and the cash change at the right in cents.

However, if your machine is programmed to exempt taxation, it cannot accept additional food stamp
