how do I compute sales tax? $1,367.85. sales tax rate is 5.75%.

also, how do I add in city tax?

  • math -

    Both taxes are based upon the retail price of the product.

    When the tax rate is 5.75%, change it to a decimal -- 0.0575 -- and multiply.

    $1367.85 * .0575 = $78.65

    To find the city tax, multiply $1367.85 by the city tax rate.
