    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.
