    Add it to your cart, type in the place you live and it will calculate the total cost.

    :rolleyes:
    Take the cost say 1399.00 multiply by your tax rate (mine) .065 gives me the tax due. Add that back into your total cost $1489.93 ... the end.

    Or just multiple the cost by 1.065 and forget addition altogether!

    As said above, times the price by your tax. (Ex. Tax is 9.25%, times 1399 by .0925)

    The other RST rates for certain goods and services are:
    • accommodation for a period of less than one month - 5%
    • admissions of more than $4 to places of amusement - 10%
    • alcoholic beverages sold through licensed establishments - 10%
    • alcoholic beverages sold through retail stores - 12%
    • alcoholic beverages taken from your inventory for your own use or provided free of charge - 12%
