  1. A far easier way, if you know the tax, would be to do something like this:
    Product: 20
    Tax: 6%

    do 20 x 1.06
    It eliminates a step and gives you the same answer.

  2. Should be like Australia where GST is included in price so you know exactly what to pay at cash register.

  3. When you buy something on line, does the State of CA require you pay sales tax on the shipping cost? I didn't think CA was charging tax on services yet.

  4. This is why I will try to buy things on sale or shop at places where I know its cheaper.
