## Sales Tax Amount and Sales Tax Rate

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

• The Sales Tax is a consumption tax imposed by states, counties or/and cities and municipalities in the United States 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 Texas for example there is a general sales tax rate of around 6.25%.

### Formulas: How to reverse calculate the Sales Tax and the Selling Price Without the Sales Tax out of the Final Sales Tax Charged 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"
• = "Price without sales tax" × (1 + "Sales tax rate%")
• In conclusion:
• "Price without sales tax" = "Sales tax charged price" ÷ (1 + "Sales tax rate%")

### Example of reverse calculating the Sales Tax and the List Selling Price out of the Final Price with the tax

• Let's say that a person who lives in an area where the sales tax rate is 5% bought some cider and had to pay a total of a \$525 dollar bill that included the sales tax.
• "Price without sales tax"
• = "Sales tax charged price" ÷ (1 + "Sales tax rate%")
• = \$525 ÷ (1 + 5%)
• = \$525 ÷ (1 + 5/100)
• = \$525 ÷ (1 + 0.05)
• = \$525 ÷ 1.05
• = \$500 dollars.
• That person had to pay a "Sales tax amount"
• = "Sales tax charged price" - "Price without sales tax"
• = \$525 - \$500
• = \$25 dollars.
