If you purchase alcohol while you are ordering your meal on the dining plan is it subject to a separate tax or the same tax as the rest of the meal?

If I remember right they separate it from the rest of your meal and tax will only be on the alcohol portion and gratuity will be expected as well

I believe DDP includes tax, and you just owe gratuity. Non-covered items will appear separately, with tax due indicated in the total and a space for gratuity for just these items. So, two separate totals and two separate gratuities.

The tax on covered items and the tax on non-covered items will be tallied separately.

In the past, they used to give entirely separate checks for covered and non-covered items, but now they'll just zero out the covered items (which puts the tax on those items to $0 as well) and tally the tax for the non-covered items.

So, for example, when you first get the check, it may look like:
Appetizer..... $12.00
Entree..........$24.00
Dessert........$9.00
Soda............$2.99
Beer............$7.50
Subtotal.......$55.49
Tax.............$3.61
Total...........$59.10

After you give them the KTTW card and fill in the other amount, it'll look like...

Appetizer..... $12.00
Entree..........$0.00
Dessert........$0.00
Soda............$0.00
Beer............$7.50
Subtotal.......$19.50
Tax.............$1.27
Total...........$20.77

And at the bottom there will show two transactions which should look like:

DDP Purchase: $0.00
Room Charge: $31.77 (This includes that other amount of $11)

Note that "Room Charge" may be cash, CC, or whatever you end up using. There's also a lot more information on each transaction, but it's not important for this.
