Apparently its just how things are printed on receipt---there is no eat in tax. You are paying tax on the food. And to the left of that is where they decided to print either "eat in" or "take out."The "eat in" is not a description of the tax, it just happens to be printed there.
Restaurants don't charge tax. They merely collect them for the government.

I can't even remember the last time they even asked if it was eat on or to go - much less provide a tray. They usually throw it in a bag anyway - how would they know to charge that tax? I can see tax on the actual food though.
I don't know if that example receipt is real or not but 55 cents on $6.43 is a significant amount of tax as a percentage. I could see lots of people saying take out to avoid it.
