.45/6.99 = .064, so probably a 6.4% tax on foods.

Total = 6.99 + .45.

I dont see what there is not to get.

It's actually 6.5% in my area for non-qualifying foods (6.25% state, .25% county).

I guess they round down then ;) Vernon Hills is not too far from where I live.

It actually seems to be round to the nearest penny. For the Munchkins, $6.99 * 0.065 =$.45435, which rounds to $.45. In comparison, for a paper back book in my area that costs$7.99, $7.99 * 0.065 =$0.51935, which rounds to $.52. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites I guess that would be the fair thing to do. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Quote: Original post by ender7771 Quote: Original post by bigjoe11a Quote:  Original post by SiCrane50 Munchkins$6.99MDSE ST $6.99TAX1$0.45**TOTAL $7.44 Well you lost me.

Yes, where do +, - and * at. Theres nothing here to tell me, what was added to what. Where did you * the tax at. and so on. I'm a beginner and new to this. I thing you should start from a simple view. 50 Munchkins$6.99
