## Sales Tax Amount and Sales Tax Rate

### What is the "Sales Tax"? What is the "Sales Tax Rate"?

• A sales tax is a consumption tax imposed by states, counties or/and cities and municipalities on the sale of goods and services.
• The sales tax is paid by the final consumer to the retailer at the point of sale as a percentage of the selling price of the sold good or service.
• This percentage, called the Sales Tax Rate, varies from state to state, in California for example there is a general sales tax rate of around 6%.

### Formulas: How to calculate the total final price of a good or service? How to charge the sales tax to the selling price?

• "Sales tax amount" = "Sales tax rate%" × "Price without sales tax"
• "Sales tax charged price"
• = "Price without sales tax" + "Sales tax amount"
• = "Price without sales tax" + "Sales tax rate%" × "Price without sales tax"
• = (1 + "Sales tax rate%") × "Price without sales tax"

### Example on how to calculate the Sales Tax

• Let's say that a person who lives in an area where the sales tax rate is 5% bought some cider for \$50 dollars, then that person would have to pay a total of:
• 5% × \$50 = 5/100 × \$50 = \$250/100 = \$2.5 dollars in sales tax.
• And the total bill containing the sales tax would be in the end: \$50 dollars + \$2.5 dollars = \$52.5 dollars.
