Item tags help in organizing the display on your register screen. It is useful when you want to display an item or items from a category without including the other items that are from the same category. You cannot set two categories for an item, so item tags are useful for these instances.
Item tags are especially useful for buffet-type restaurants when you want a certain food to appear during your breakfast and dinner menu, but not on your lunch menu.
