Service charge/Tax question

I am reviewing my final estimated invoice for my venue/caterer and the 20% service charge is taxed!?!?!  Is this correct?  I tried to find more info on this on WI Dept of Revenue but couldn't.  Did anyone get a good explanation for this that they can help me understand? Or fight? It's w/Zilli Hospitality so I'm guessing its correct and they know what they are doing, I just find it hard to believe.

But....wouldn't be surprised.... :-)  Thanks!!!

    We aren't using Zilli Hospitality, but our service charges were also taxed.

    Yes, that's correct.  Our caterer told us that is just how the state of Wisconsin operates - how lame!  LOL

    Yep, that's what we have been told too at the Yacht Club.

    Well, they ended up absorbing the bartender labor charge which was about the same cost as the 20% service charge so 50% off!  Never hurts to ask and we feel like we're not getting ripped off.  :-)
