It depends on your jurisdiction and your calculator.

For example, I am in Ontario where the Harmonized Sales Tax is 13%.

To calculate the HST, you multiply the amount by 13/100 or 0.13. On some calculators, you can hit 13 then the percent key and it divides the number by 100.

To calculate the total including tax, add a 1 in front of the decimal. With 13% HST, you would use 1.13. So for a purchase of $100, you would get $113.

Good luck.

=IF((A1*7.5%) > 300, 300, A1*7.5%)

- IF Sales Amount * Tax Rate is greate than $300 then make it $300 no matter what the value is.
- IF Sales Amount * Tax Rate is less than $300 then make it the value of Sales Amount * Tax Rate.

Partly this is a matter of interpretation. If $101.65 is seen as 100% then sales tax is

$101.65 x 6.25 / 100 = $6.35

However there is a flaw in this. The remainder (the sale price) is

$101.65 - $6.35 = $95.30

So what was the sales tax on this remainder?

6.35 / 95.30 x 100 = 6.67%........too much

So we should regard the $ total as 106.25% not 100%. Then the amount which was sales tax is really

$101.65 x 6.25 / 106.25 = $5.98

$101.65 x 6.25 / 100 = $6.35

Hi Lori,

Here is how it is done. In INVENTORY, create a coupon item. In description, call it DISCOUNT, set to FLAT AMOUNT, check each SALES TAX used, and set amount to a negative -1.00. Click INCLUDE and choose which items or departments this coupon works for. You will need a coupon item for each amount of coupons you have out. This will show the discount amount on receipt and subtract the tax discount.

Sales tax is simply a digital factor of a dollar, so 7% would be 7 cents on each dollar. the way to figure 7% sales tax on $22.50 would be: $22.50 X 0.07 = $1.58 for a total of $24.08.

Hello! It would depend on the State your buying the vehicle...In North Carolina, in lieu of a sales tax, a 3% tax is charged each time the title is transferred...However, assuming a tax of 7%...

$17000.00

- 2000.00

$15,000.00 X 7% = $1050.00 + $15,000 = $16,050.00
