How do You Figure Sales Tax?

Every state in the US has it’s own amount of sales tax, so first you must find out how much that is in your state. For example, Michigan has a 6% sales tax, so everything taxable adds 6% of the total to what you actually pay. Say I spend $100 at the store, at the register it will automatically multiply 100x.06, so the total that you pay the cashier would be $106.
