Importance of Sales Tax
Sales tax is important to each state as it is a mechanism used to generate income for the state. At the same time, it tracks sales for each business.

Sales Tax = Cost Price x Rate


Suppose you buy a car for 20,000 dollars and pay 5% in as tax. Therefore:-

  • Tax = 20,000 x 5% = 20,000 times 0.05
  • Tax = 20,000 x 0.05 = 1,000 dollars

And the cost with tax is 20,000 + 1000 = 21,000
