How do you compute for the sales tax on my order/invoice?

Sales tax on your orders is composed of State rates and district rates. The sales tax percentage ranges from 5% to 9.250%, depending on your State and district’s rates.

For example: You are from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and you ordered a $100.00 item. The state rate in Beverly Hills is 8.75 percent and the district rate is 1.00 percent. When you combine the two rates, you get the total sales tax percentage, which is 9.750 percent.

What you do is divide your total purchase by 100 and multiply it by 9.750 (your sales tax). For this example, the sales tax amounts to $9.75. This means that the buyer will pay a total of $109.75 for the aforementioned item.
