When I tried to find the information about the Credit Karma Tax calculator, one of the information that I found was the Sales Tax calculator on Credit Karma site. It can be accessed by firstly accessing Credit Cards Calculators page in the website and then choosing the Sales Tax Calculator. What is it? In the Sales Tax Calculator, you are able to find out the sales tax rate in your area and how much sales tax adds to the price of something you buy.
Besides the sales tax calculator, I also found information about Cash App Taxes. Both information can be read below.
Sales Tax Calculator
As explained above, the Sales Tax Calculator in Credit Karma is the calculator that you are able to use to find out the sales tax rate in your area and how much sales tax can add to the price of something you buy.
As you know, when you are shopping for something at the store or paying for a service, the final cost will be higher than what is on the price tag. Let’s say that you make your purchase in a state, county or municipality that charges sales tax. If so, the additional charge usually will appear on the bill or receipt.
The sales tax calculator of Credit Karma is able to help you determine how much the sales tax is in your area. So, you are able to get a better idea about the final purchase cost of what you buy.
When you access the Sales Tax Calculator on the Credit Karma site, you have to enter your details such as your city, state, zip code, and price before tax. After entering all the details, then you have to click on the Calculate button to estimate your sales tax. It is important for you to note that the sales tax calculator only provides an estimate based on the information that you give. The actual final sales total may be affected by other variables such as additional taxes or service fees.
Now, let’s find out the description of each field that you have to enter in the Sales Tax Calculator. The first one is your city field. The field is optional. However, even though it is optional, you can enter the city where you plan to make your purchase. Then, there is a state field where here you have to input the state where the transaction will be done. For the zip code field, you have to enter the ZIP code of the town or city where you are buying the item or service. Price before tax field is the price of the product or service that you may see on the price tag, menu and many more.
Now, how to calculate sales tax? As explained on the Credit Karma site, sales tax is calculated as a fixed percentage of the cost of items or services that you buy. Then, it is added to your final bill. Before tax is added, you may see the purchase price listed as ‘subtotal’ and then a line for ‘taxes’, followed by the ‘total’.
Sales tax calculator of Credit Karma can help you determine what you are able to expect to pay in state and local taxes, if any, and also the final cost of the items or services that you buy.
Let’s say that you know the rate and you prefer to do the math yourself. If so, you are able to use the simple formula below.
[(Price of the item) x (Percentage as a decimal)] + Price of the item = Total cost
Let’s take an example cited from the Credit Karma site. Imagine that you are shopping in Collingswood, New Jersey, and you are planning to make a $10 purchase. The rate of the tax for a purchase here is 6.62%. So, you can calculate it like this:
[($10.00) x (.06625)] + $10 = $10.66
If you use the above formula, the sale tax is $0.66. So, you will be charged a total of $10.66 at checkout.
However, it is important for you to note that even though sales taxes are able to apply to a lot of the purchases that you make, not all goods and services are taxed. Also, it can vary depending on where you are buying the items.
