In New York, the sale of whole bagels isn't subject to sales tax. But the tax does apply to "sliced or prepared bagels (with cream cheese or other toppings)," according to the state Department of Taxation and Finance. And if the bagel is eaten in the store, even if it's never been touched by a knife, it's also taxed

Look at it this way, slicing bagel takes effort, manpower etc. thus taxes. Unsliced ones don't need extra efforts..buy a unsliced one take it to home and slice it, simple!

I like Canada's New taxes they are really ridiculous. The HST tax has such random exemptions. Tampons are Tax Free!!! I save like 50 cents a box.
